Fugue Bwv 847 Analysis Essay

In reviewing my J.S. Bach You Tube archives, I noticed a series of videos I had uploaded on Bach’s Fugue that follows the Prelude in C minor, BWV 847. Some of these instructions were in tutorial form. Others, were lessons-in-progress with an 11-year old student.

Since I fielded a few questions having to do with the follow-up to my first video that covered the Exposition, I decided to post ALL footage that related to this particular Fugue. In this way, I could easily link to the blog at my You Tube site without having strands running wild.

Claudia, 11, continued practicing Bach’s Fugue in C minor, (Well-Tempered Clavier) following a break for the Baroque Festival. We had intensified study of the Prelude in preparation for this event.

For today’s lesson, our work encompassed the Fugue opening through measure 20.

AIDEN CAT

Aiden got into the act following Claudia’s lesson as he felt forlorn and out in the cold. A preceding Skype to Pennsylvania kept him out of the fray, encapsulated in a warm bedroom within easy reach of his food bowl. But that was not enough.

He wanted to make up for lost time with a shower of affection from me. And he deservingly received it…

purrrrrr…..
