Toccata in G major, BuxWV165


The Toccata in G major, BuxWV165, is for manuals alone. Bars 1–37 provide an animated introduction; at bar 38 begins a three-voice fugal passage based on a subject consisting entirely of semiquavers; and after a further extemporary passage, Buxtehude writes a coda in which variety is provided by the insertion of a jig-like passage.

La Toccata en sol majeur, BuxWV165, s’adresse aux manuels seuls. Les mesures 1–37 fournissent une introduction animée et, à la mesure 38, un passage fugué à trois voix apparaît, qui se fonde sur un sujet tout en doubles croches; passé un nouvel épisode improvisé, Buxtehude conçoit une coda dont la variété découle de l’insertion d’un passage à la gigue.

Die Toccata in G-Dur, BuxWV165, ist für Manuale allein. Takt 1–37 bieten eine lebhafte Einführung, und in Takt 38 beginnt eine dreistimmige Fugenpassage, die auf einem ausschließlich aus Sechzehnteln bestehenden Thema basiert und nach einer weiteren improvisierten Passage schreibt Buxtehude eine Coda, in der er durch die Einschiebung einer giguehaften Passage Abwechslung erreicht.
