Prelude and Fugue in F minor, BWV534

composer

 
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.

from notes by Robin Langley © 1993

Le Prélude et Fugue en fa mineur, BWV534 est une œuvre inégale, dans laquelle de puissants moments sont affaiblis par certains mauvais calculs techniques, mais on ne peut nier la majesté des figures de clavier bondissantes du prélude au-dessus de gammes de pédales à la marche rapide, ni la sérieuse et complète élaboration d’un exemple précédent de la fugue allabreve, avec sa septième diminuée descendante, typiquement tourmentée, dans le sujet.

Français: Alain Midoux

Präludium und Fuge in f-Moll, BWV534 sind ein unausgeglichenes Werk voller eindrucksvoller Momente, die durch technische Fehlkalkulationen verdorben werden. Dennoch sind weder die Erhabenheit der federnden Manualfiguren des Präludiums über getragenen Pedalläufen zu leugnen, noch die ernsthafte und gründliche Verarbeitung eines frühen Beispiels der Allabreve-Fuge mit typisch angstvollen, matten verminderten Septimen im Subjekt.
