Sample Set: BP - Niederzwehren
Software: GrandOrgue
Genre: Baroque
op.11 No.23

One thing in advance: there is not much more ahead of me in this Opus 11. Now the Prelude and Fugue in B major have been completed. I play it again on the beautiful Noeske organ in Kassel-Niederzwehren. The prelude is a baroque minuet, I remembered the time when my brother and I made music with the instrumental circle, often there were dance movements by GPT - like this minuet. And because the syllable Neo is contained in NeoBaroque, there must be something that, well, "scratches" the baroque frame. And that is undoubtedly Minuetto II, which is framed by Minuet I. It is in a minor key, is played a little faster and breaks out of the baroque corset. From bar 47 onwards, it develops a life of its own, so to speak, and only comes to an end many bars later. To calm everyone down again, Minuet I is repeated, which then also concludes the prelude.
The top voice is a recorder 4" register that I also tune an octave lower.
Now follows the fugue, which is notated for only three voices, but because of its harmonic density has the appearance of a 4- to 5-voice composition. Again, several beginnings follow, and each beginning is given a gradually filling register number. In the last approach, the theme is played backwards, then there is an augmentation, and instead of an extended organ point, from bar 54 there is a "lying voice" in the middle voice, in the form of a syncopated fifth on the tonic. A magnificent coda concludes this piece and the big question is, how does the composer conclude his op.11? One thing is certain, it will be in B minor. I have various ideas - let's see what it comes down to.
Have fun now with my new composition!
