Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, Op 29

composer
1898

 
The Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, Op 29 was written in 1898 when Reger was twenty-five. The Fantasia suggests an influence from Bach’s Fantasia in G minor, BWV542 in the rhetorical figuration of the RH, juxtaposed with dramatic chordal progressions, and the periodic introduction of quieter fugal sections. The Fugue adopts a moto perpetuo of constant semiquavers, developing textures of some complexity. It is arguably too long at 110 bars, although when the climax arrives, with the tune in stretto between the outer voices, it is certainly effective.
