Misc. Notes:

Had this keyboard fugue in a set of three I had lying around. The scope and flow of this is very much in a Bach-like style and it begged to be orchestrated. However, Albrechtsberger's principal style is Pre-classical/Classical, though many of his fugues (mostly early ones) are in a decidedly Baroque style. He was after all a teacher (who at some point taught Beethoven), so its not surprising that he wrote a lot of obviously pedagogical music. A kind viewer offered this information: From Op.1. The earliest possible edition is from Berlin, cca 1778(or 77?) Originally, the fugue was the 2nd out of 12 (this is apparently confirmed by the catalogue number in "Johann Georg Albrechtsbergers Fugenkompositionen in seinen Werken für Tasteninstrumente", by Schramek-Kirchner).

Misc. Notes:

Beethoven was a student of Albrechtsberger (1794-1795) and arranged Op. 1 #6 in d minor for string quartet (it appears to be classified as Op.11a). Op.11 is the "Gassenhauer" Trio written in 1797/1798. So the time period is close to where he would be studying counterpoint with and have ready access Albrechtsberger's works. Almost a 100% Beethoven transcription. See other post with original beneath the Beethoven for comparison. A virtual performance is on the Synthesizer/MIDI tab. The autograph I worked from was Johann Georg Albrechtsberger, Fuge für Streichquartett über den Anfang des Chorals "Christus ist erstanden" (d-Moll) op. 11a, Partitur, Autograph Beethoven-Haus Bonn, Sammlung H. C. Bodmer, HCB Mh 105.

Misc. Comments

About the Kram Edition

Op. 1 is remarkable in its contrapuntal and at times harmonic complexity. For those wanting to study fugue there are few better examples than these. Working from an original publication source that is incomplete (Found sources for all but Fugue 7 which is incomplete). Source: "Douze Fugues Pour le Clavecin ou l'Orgue" - J. J. Hummel edition No. 183. (ca. 1778/78 I was told from the source I got the manuscript from and I see other references in RISM to publications in 1780 - so the first published date of 1783 posted here is likely incorrect). Numerous places in the fugues where three parts are notated on one staff. Often I renotate on two staves to better bring out the voices visually. No. 8 is already posted formally attributed to J.S. Bach. No.4 is also posted as "Double Fugue in C Minor". Note the trills in No. 9 are all from the original as they are a functional part of the fugue. Fugue 6 was located in both an original (a set of three organ fugues) and a Beethoven arrangement for String Quartet (see arrangements tab).
