Prelude at 0:00
Fugue at 4:07
This prélude et fugue, the second one from Dupré's op.7, is Imho one of his most poetic and touching works, very different from his late works which may sometimes sound a bit "dry bones", if I dare.
For the prélude, the RH plays a singing and nostalgic melody under which the LH plays a quiet continuous garland of staccato 16ths on gambe 8' and octavin 2'.
The "official" "Prélude de la goutte d'eau" (water drop prelude) is Chopin's 15th prélude in d flat, but Dupré's one would surely deserve the same nickname.
The fugue remains in the same quiet and dreamy mood, with a theme close from the prelude's theme. Its conclusion from 8:37
is most moving, like a dream which ends.
This prelude and fugue is surely the least difficult from op.7, but not so easy however :-)
