Little Prelude and Fugue No 8 in B flat major, BWV560

by J T Krebs ?

Like No 5 in G major the prelude includes a substantial pedal solo, although here the consistent use of one motif gives a much greater sense of unity. At the end of the triple-time fugue contrapuntal writing is abandoned in favour of a carillon-like ending, based on the second half of the subject.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 2000

À l’instar du n°5 en sol majeur, le prélude comprend un substantiel solo de pédale, même si, ici, l’usage constant d’un motif induit un bien plus grand sens de l’unité. À la fin de la fugue ternaire, l’écriture contrapuntique est rejetée au bénéfice d’une conclusion de type carillon, fondée sur la seconde moitié du sujet.

Français: Hypérion

Wie die Nr. 5 in G-Dur enthält das Präludium ein umfangreiches Pedalsolo, nur daß hier die durchgehende Verwendung eines einzelnen Motivs das Gefühl der Einheitlichkeit wesentlich erhöht. Am Ende der Fuge im Dreiertakt wird der kontrapunktische Satz zugunsten eines glockenspielartigen Abschlusses aufgegeben, der auf der zweiten Hälfte des Subjekts basiert.
