Dietrich Buxtehude is probably most familiar to modern classical music audiences as the man who inspired the young Johann Sebastian Bach to make a lengthy pilgrimage to Lubeck, Buxtehude's place of employment and residence for most of his life, just to hear Buxtehude play the organ. But Buxtehude was a major figure among German Baroque composers in his own right. Though we do not have copies of much of the work that most impressed his contemporaries, Buxtehude nonetheless left behind a body of vocal and instrumental music which is distinguished by its contrapuntal skill, devotional atmosphere, and raw intensity. He helped develop the form of the church cantata, later perfected by Bach, and he was just as famous a virtuoso on the organ.

This praeludium in F sharp minor is one of Buxtehude's most-played organ works. During Buxtehude's career in Lübeck, organs were just beginning to be tuned in temperaments that would make it possible to play in keys like F sharp minor. These tuning systems however left some of the more remote keys on the circle of fifths sounding somewhat sour. In this piece, the C sharp major triad which would occur over and over again as the dominant in F sharp minor would sound quite spicy due to the E sharp which would be tuned as an F rather than an E sharp. Buxtehude takes advantage of these tuning anomalies to create a very expressive and edgy work. The praeludium opens with 29 measures of free toccata-like material, followed by two fugues back to back without any intervening free material. The second fugue gives way to rhapsodic passage work borrowing motivic material from the fugue subject that Buxtehude plays with at least twice the duration of the fugue. While Buxtehude usually alternates toccata-like material with fugal material, in this case he sandwiches two fugues in between free toccata sections.
