This Präludium in G major is the fourth and last one of Schneider's preludes. It’s half a year ago since I published the third one, but I had to develop my technique a bit to be able to play this one. The fugue is by far the most important part of the work. It’s not very long, it’s not overdeveloped, but it shows Schneider’s mastery of counterpoint. Almost effortlessly and with a certain nonchalance Schneider uses techniques as stretto and inversion without ever interrupting the musical flow. It’s a fitting end to the publication of Schneider’s works. All that is left to do is combine them all into one comprehensive edition.
