Sample text

5. Second Suite Prelude, ¤ve-section formal plan Sections: Bars: First 1 2nd 13 3rd 40 4th 49 Last 55 63 The Preludes | 25 T—S—D—T progressions in the ¤rst four bars of the First Suite Prelude. The Last section of the Third Suite Prelude is based on a T—S—D—T progression with a secondary dominant chord preceding the S (IV) chord. Linear progressions contribute to motion and ®ow of the middle sections of the movement. Most of the movement remains in C major, except for a short tonal region on V (G major) in bars 7–13 and a slightly longer tonal region on vi (A minor) in bars 15–28.

These passages recall similar passages in the middle sections of the Fourth Suite Prelude. In both instances, performers may elect to play them in a freer, quasi-improvisatory style. The PRELUDE ends with an authentic cadence on G in bar 27. Like the cadence in bar 10, the cadence chord has only two notes (G and D) and the absence of a third allows it to be heard as the tonic of G minor or the dominant of C minor. 1. 2. Analytical Concept: Fugue Analysis The PRELUDE of this movement (bars 1–27) serves as an introduction to the following FUGUE (bars 28– 223).

0. The Fourth Suite Prelude The Fourth Suite Prelude is in E major, the key of Bach’s Cantata No. 140, Sleepers Awake, three of Mozart’s four horn concertos, and Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony. Many writers in the Baroque and Classical periods identify E major as a key of power and strength, and the bold gestures of this prelude conform to this description. The meter of this prelude is alla breve ( ), which usually indicates two strong beats per bar instead of four. The analysis of this prelude calls for no new techniques or terminology, but it does present fascinating analytical aspects.
