2 Part Fugue in C, Hess 236 nr.9 (Corrected by Albrechtsberger)(mp3)
Based on theme Nr.16 from Albrechtsberger's list. Nr.9 from Nottebohm's Chapter IV, p.85. Corrected by Albrechtsberger. The fugue dates from about 1794-95.
According to Albrechtsberger's rules, the second cadenza, which ends the second section of the fugue, has to be on III. Beethoven does what he had done in all other fugues in the major mode, and writes a correct cadenza in E minor :
Here scored for kettledrum doubled by metal pad and viola doubled by ice rain.
