Fugue in C minor, BWV575

composer

 
The presence of a similar toccata-like postlude at the end of the Fugue in C minor, BWV575, suggests that this work too, once had a prelude, now sadly lost. The fugue subject itself tends to reinforce this idea, with its feeling of starting in mid-sentence, both tonally and metrically.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 1997

Ein ähnliches tokkataartiges Nachspiel am Ende der Fuge in c-Moll, BWV575, weist darauf hin, daß auch dieses Werk einst ein Präludium besaß, das jedoch bedauerlicherweise verlorenging. Das Fugenthema selbst verstärkt diesen Eindruck, daß es sowohl in tonaler als auch metrischer Hinsicht mitten im Satz anzufangen scheint.
