Catalogue Number: 05J024
Description: The fugues, small, three-part works of formal concision and thematic development, were widely disseminated in Europe during the composer's lifetime. The Fantasias are multi-sectional in form and their improvisatory character comes from the frequent changes of texture, tempo and key. The 19-minute Falck 15 is a very long work for its period (presumably the 1750s-60s). Julia Brown (harpsichord).
