The Counter-subject is very short, and stands against only a small portion of the Subject, and on three occasions (B 19, 20) it is altogether omitted. The Episodes are constructed from fragments taken sometimes from the Subject and sometimes from the Counter-subject. As a quintessential Baroque fugue, Bach’s D major fugue from Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier will make for suitable illustration of how to analyze a fugue. The first element is the fugue subject. In a conventional (Baroque) fugue, the subject is first stated by itself: Incidentally, this subject is an example of double dotting or.   Fragments of Life. Dietrich Bonhoeffer referred to Bach as he lay imprisoned at Flossenbürg Prison. The great martyr-of-the faith was reflecting on the “fragments” of one’s life that seems to lose meaning in the course of time. Yet, he finds that those fragments take on new meaning when seen in light of a God-redeemed world. He wrote. The double fugue is irregular in the sense that there is no strict exposition of the two subjects, and the development follows quite unusual lines.

One of the longest and most elaborate of the forty-eight, although containing no stretto. It is virtually a double fugue, its second subject (or countersubject) having a separate exposition from bar 61 . The haunting five-voice fugue in B-flat minor has several characteristics which are notable. First, it is one of the rare fugues with five voices (there are two in Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier, and none in Book 2).
