Revisiting Bach’s Fugue form (BWV 847 in C minor)

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.

The manuscript below incorporates the theoretical mapping of Jose Rodriguez Alvira (Click the URL for the complete score with analysis)

Part One: This covers all elements of the Fugue form, and the EXPOSITION inclusive.

Part Two: Continues with episodes, etc. fleshing out appearance of three voices

Part Three:
Continues where part two leaves off
