Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV545

composer

 
The Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV545 has a particularly complex history, not only appearing in another form in B flat, but having had, on two occasions, two different slow movements inserted between prelude and fugue; in turn, each of these was subjected to revision and improvement. In their present shape, where a fresh, early conception is complemented by maturity in the handling of detail, they display both concise and masterly treatment of their material.

Le Prélude et Fugue en ut majeur, BWV545 ont une histoire particulièrement complexe; non seulement ils paraissent dans une autre forme en si bémol, mais en deux occasions, deux différents mouvements lents ont été insérés entre le prélude et la fugue; chacun a été par la suite révisé et amélioré. Dans leur forme présente où, à la fraîcheur de la première conception s’ajoute la maturité du maniement des détails, elles révèlent un traitement à la fois concis et magistral de leur matériau.

Das Werk, Präludium und Fuge in C-Dur, BWV545, hat eine besonders komplizierte Vorgeschichte. Nicht nur ist es in einer Variante in B-Dur erschienen, sondern es wurden auch zweimal zwei verschiedene langsame Sätze zwischen Präludium und Fuge eingefügt, und jeder der Sätze wurde daraufhin der Revision und Verbesserung unterzogen. In der vorliegenden Form, die ein unverbrauchtes altes Konzept durch gereiften Umgang mit Details ergänzt, zeichnen sich beide Teile durch die prägnante und meisterhafte Umsetzung ihres Materials aus.
