Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he did not introduce new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France.

The date of this piece can't be pinpointed beyond asserting that it comes from Bach's Weimar years, 1708 - 1717. The ten-bar fantasia is more complicated than it looks. On paper, it's just a series of chords taking less than a minute to play; in reality, the harpsichordist is expected to arpeggiate and improvise on the chords as lavishly as desired, exploring the chords' dissonances and harmonic surprises. The driven fugue, Bach's longest outside The Art of the Fugue, shares its basic theme with Bach's Fugue for organ in A minor (BWV 543). The restless, note-splattered music steadily percolates, thickening its texture with counterpoint derived from the main theme, modulating through several keys, and never dissipating its energy until the cadence of the final measures.
