Prelude and Fugue No 23 in B Major, BWV 868
Prelude and Fugue in B Major, BWV 868
"Composed in an improvisational style, this short and joyful work has a hidden challenge for the performer. The key of B Major, with its 5 sharps, is often clumsy and requires a good deal of skill to appear effortless."
"The theme of this Fugue is proud and dignified. As the entries proliferate, sentiments of pride and fulfillment escalate."
