J.S. Bach ~ Prelude & Fugue XIV in f# minor, II

Maybe my favorite of all the cantabile Preludes; reminds me of the Minore Variation #25 in the Goldberg Variations.

The multivarious subjects of the Fugue run from the stentorian rhetorical to the motive, emblematic to the fluid and accumulative semi-quavers.

And those new Steinway hammers are coming in nicely, I think.
