Prelude and Fugue in C major, BWV545
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
