Preludio 'Allegro festivo'

published in Book 2 'On scale-derived forms' of the Klavierübung, second edition, 1925

The Preludio, marked Allegro festivo, from Book 2, is in D flat major but ends abruptly with a cadence in C major; it calls for stepwise movements in the outer (or inner) fingers while the others are busy filling the harmony.

Le Preludio, marqué Allegro festivo (livre 2), est en ré bémol majeur mais se termine brusquement avec une cadence en do majeur; il fait appel à des mouvements conjoints dans les doigts extérieurs (ou intérieurs) pendant que les autres sont occupés à remplir l’harmonie.

Das Preludio aus dem zweiten Band, das mit Allegro festivo überschrieben ist, steht in Des-Dur, endet jedoch abrupt mit einer C-Dur-Kadenz; es finden hier stufenweise Bewegungen in den äußeren (bzw. inneren) Fingern statt, während die anderen das harmonische Gerüst aufbauen.
