Prelude and Fugue in A major, BWV536

composer

 
The Buxtehudian prelude is graceful rather than forthright, while the dance fugue, with its unusual accents and suspensions, has an almost feminine lightness.

from notes by Robin Langley © 1993

Le prélude Buxtehudien est gracieux plutôt que catégorique, alors que la fugue de danse, avec ses accents peu communs et ses suspensions, a une légèreté presque féminine que rehausse une tessiture de pédale exceptionnellement haute.

extrait des notes rédigées par Robin Langley © 1993
Français: Alain Midoux

Das Präludium im Stil Buxtehudes gibt sich eher anmutig als forsch, während die Tanzfuge mit ihren ungewöhnlichen Akzenten und Vorhalten eine geradezu feminine Leichtigkeit hat, verstärkt durch eine auffällig hoch angesetzte Pedalstimme.
