Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, BWV537
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The fugue from the C minor Fantasia and Fugue, BWV537, an excellently wrought allabreve example with a chromatically rising second subject, shows Bach experimenting with da capo elements even in his late Weimar years (1716/7), while the accompanying fantasia forms a perfect foil with its deeply expressive, pliant imitation evolving over long-held pedal points.
