Example text

A strong point of arrival in the middle of the prelude occurs in bar 45, following the extended linear progression that began in bar 37. Another possible point of arrival is bar 21 with the cadence on the tonic degree of the tonal region of vi (A minor). However, only the note A on the ¤rst sixteenth of the bar represents the tonic harmony; the rest of the bar represents a deceptive cadence on V5/V. Performers may choose to emphasize the “arrival” function of the resolution on pitch A by lengthening this note, or to emphasize the deceptive cadence by playing bar 21 strictly in time.

2. The most obvious cadence in a movement usually comes at the end of the movement, and in the Cello Suites it almost always involves a progression from a dominant chord to a tonic chord. This is called an “authentic” cadence. There are several harmonic cadence types as shown in the following listing. • A perfect authentic cadence (PAC) has V as precadential chord and I as cadential chord. Both must be in root position. • An imperfect authentic cadence (IAC) has V as pre-cadential chord and I as cadential chord.

In other fugues, Bach invents new contrapuntal lines to accompany the subject in later statements. 3. Fifth Suite Prelude: The Exposition of the FUGUE Traditional fugal analysis uses the term “exposition” for the initial set of statements of the subject. Typically, the tonality of the statements in an exposition alternates between the tonal regions of tonic and dominant. Usually composers write a passage that serves as a bridge between the second statement and the third statement. 1 outlines the materials and tonality of the opening exposition of this FUGUE.
