The first three notes in this Fugue are C#, A and F#, in other words, mi, do and la of F# minor. These notes are strong and percussive. Recall the first notes of Prelude No.14. They are also on the downstream and F#, C# and A. Yes, they are la, mi and do, which should be played with a great sensitiveness on the contrary. So Prelude No.14 and its Fugue can be started and played on a common basic identity, although they have a clear individuality.
I love this Fugue very much, but this strong and percussive tension makes me exhausted. So I converted this Fugue into two kinds of ensemble. One is a string ensemble, and the other is a wind instrument ensemble. Our family ensemble will surprise my great husband, won't it?
