Little Prelude and Fugue No 5 in G major, BWV557

by J T Krebs ?

The extrovert prelude shows the influence of Buxtehude in its plethora of virtuosic motifs and its extended pedal solo. The strong contours of the syncopated fugue subject make it particularly suitable for stretto writing, with entries tumbling one on top of another.

Le prélude extraverti montre l’influence de Buxtehude, à travers sa pléthore de motifs virtuoses et son solo de pédale prolongé. Les puissants contours du sujet syncopé de la fugue rendent la pièce singulièrement appropriée à l’écriture en strette, où les entrées cascadent les unes sur les autres.

Français: Hypérion

Das extrovertierte Präludium läßt mit seiner Fülle virtuoser Motive und seinem ausgedehnten Pedalsolo erneut den Einfluß Buxtehudes erkennen. Die starken Konturen der synkopierten Fuge machen sie besonders geeignet zur Engführung mit Einsätzen, die sich zu überstürzen scheinen.
