Prelude in G major, BWV568

composer

 
This Prelude, though standing alone, starts in a manner that resembles the more famous G major Prelude, BWV541, with is descending G major scale. Despite its contested authorship, BWV568 surely deserves to be better known, with its mixture of brilliant virtuosity, grand chordal writing, inventive pedal-driven harmony, and overall sense of gravitas. The striking impression it leaves is heightened by the wonderful final cadence, with the resolution of its final chord delayed by a quadruple appoggiatura.
