Prelude and Fugue in F minor, BWV534
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The F minor Prelude and Fugue, BWV534 is an uneven work of powerful moments vitiated by some technical miscalculations, but there is no denying the majesty of the prelude’s springing manual figures over striding pedal scales nor the serious and thorough working of an early example of the allabreve fugue, with its typically anguished drooping diminished 7th in the subject.
