Early in 1845, Clara Schumann, along with her husband Robert, embarked on a study of fugue and counterpoint. These three sets of preludes and fugues show to what great advantage she put her study of Bach and others. Haunting melodies, robust three and four voice fugues, sweeping arpeggios, and perpetual sixteenth-note motion are just a few of the characteristics youll find in this collection.
