Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, BWV537

composer

 
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.

from notes by Robin Langley © 1993

La Fugue en ut mineur, BWV537, exemple d’allabreve parfaitement œuvrée, avec un second sujet s’élevant chromatiquement, révèle Bach expérimentant avec des éléments da capo même dans ses dernières années à Weimar (1716/7), tandis que la fantaisie qui l’accompagne forme un contraste parfait avec sa souple imitation, profondément expressive, qui se développe sur des points de pédales longuement tenus.

Français: Alain Midoux

Die Fuge in c-Moll, BWV537, ein hervorragend gearbeitetes Beispiel des Allabreve-Typus mit chromatisch ansteigendem zweitem Subjekt, demonstriert, daß Bach auch in den späten Weimarer Jahren (1716/17) noch mit Da-Capo-Elementen experimentiert hat. Die zugehörige Fantasie, deren höchst expressive, geschmeidige Imitation sich über lang ausgehaltenen Orgelpunkten entfaltet, bietet dazu das perfekte Gegenstück.
