BWV 871/2: Fugue 2 in C minor
(c) Yo Tomita, 1997
Early Version (ca.1738)
Bach's autograph is lost, but this early version is known through the
copy (P 595) made by J. F. Agricola, who began his study with Bach
on that year.
I have left potential errors by Agricola in this MIDI reconstruction .
Final Version (1739)
Mozart's arrangement (c.1782)
This is the first of the five 4-part fugues arranged by Mozart (KV
405). Being the first, Mozart supplied articulations (mainly slurs and staccati) in meticulous details. .
