A bit sooner than I expected, here's the third part of the fugue from Krebs's Prelude and Fugue in d minor, KrebsWV 405. It's obviously less difficult than the second fugue.

The fugue from KrebsWV is really three fugues into one, in which the theme's are of course related. The theme of this third fugue is the inversion of the theme of the first fugue. As a reminder: the first fugue is here: and it's theme is also stated in the recording of the second fugue:

Both themes are of course combined: from 3.38'' and further both are played a few times together till this episodes ends at 5.08''. Krebs then recapitulises the first fugue with a new exposition based on the first theme after which the fugue is brought to a conclusion. Listening exercise: the theme of the first fugue is played in the lowest part of the left hand in the las four bars. Can you spot it?

And now it's back to the prelude and to practise to play all 27 pages in one go... Pfffffff
