"His distinctive achievement was to present in its final shape the fabric of polyphony." — Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians
This assessment of Bach's accomplishments is best realized in his organ music. Regarded as the world's greatest composer for organ, Bach coupled mastery of the instrument with his genius for composition to produce some of the richest and most beautiful music of all time.
This comprehensive volume — reproduced directly from the authoritative Bach-Gesellschaft edition — reprints 25 sets of preludes and fugues, i.e. compositions written as pairs. Individual preludes and fugues composed over the years are not included. This volume contains:
Preludes and Fugues: C Major (BMV 531); D Minor (BWV 539); C Major (MWV 547); DF Major (MWV 532); G Major (MWV 541); E Minor (BWV 548); E Minor (MWV 533); A Minor (MWV 543); C Minor (MWV 549); F Minor (MWV 534); B Minor (BWV 544); G Major (MWV 550); G Minor (MWV 535); C Major (MWV 545); A Minor (MWV 551); A Major (BWV 536); C Minor (BWV 546).
Eight Short Preludes and Fugues: C Major (BWV 553); G Major (MWV 557); D Minor (MWV 554); G Minor (MWV 558); E Minor (BWV 555); A Minor (BWV 559); F Major (MWV 556); B-flat Major (MWV 560).
