The Cycle of 24 Preludes and Fugues. Modern Interpretations in the Russian Music


Gabriela VlahopolDepartment of Theoretical Music Studies„George Enescu“ University of Arts IaşiStr. Horia 7–9, Iaş


Although the pair prelude-fugue is naturally associated with Bach’s Well-tempered clavier, modern treatments applied to fugues and to other forms belonging to the Baroque were relatively common in the 1920s and the 1930s. The waning interest for the imitative polyphonic composition in the second half of the 20th century was compensated by the emergence in European musical cultures of several valuable collections. This study concerns the Russian musical space and two representative works from the sequence of modern reinterpretations of the cycle of preludes and fugues composed after 1950: 24 Preludes and fugues, Op. 87 by Dmitri Shostakovich and 24 Preludes and fugues Op. 29 and Op. 45 (1970) by Rodion Shchedrin.
