Fugue in F, BWVAnh42

composer

 
This lively little fugue is of uncertain origin, having a ‘post-Bach ring to it’ (Williams, 2003 p. 576). If it is by Bach, it is a testament to his imaginative way with the fugue genre. It is in three parts, though loosely, as a fourth part occasionally fills out the cadences, and also fills out the texture for the closing bars, giving a satisfying close. The subject is very rich, and typically balanced: the first half rising tunefully in a settled two-time, the second half descending in syncopated ties. This leads to a fugue that plays with these elements: melodious, but given impetus and variety with suspensions and touches of the minor.
