Gigue Fugue in G major, BWV577


The so-called ‘Jig’ Fugue is an anomaly. With a subject similar to Buxtehude’s Prelude in C, BuxWV174, its authorship by Bach has traditionally been challenged, although more recent scholarship has confirmed BWV577 as indeed by Bach. Not attached to a prelude, the Fugue stands alone, a fact that also fittingly reflects its unique musical character. The ‘jig’-like nature of the affect is obvious from the start of a long winding subject, with wide intervals and four clear sections, each musically distinct. The variety and richness of the subject makes possible a colourful fugue that dances along through a number of episodes.
