4 part simple fugue in E minor, Hess 238 nr.1

No.1 from Nottebohm's chapter VI, p.95. The fugue dates from about 1794-95, and is based on theme nr.11 from Albrechtsberger's list. It's the third time Beethoven chooses this theme. He probably liked it. Here we may notice a greater involvement by Beethoven. It is as if until now he was merely following Albrechtsberger's rules. Here recorded for flute, english horn, clarinet & bassoon.
