Although there are ten fugues in all, the first is divided into three distinct sections, the middle one being what one would call an episode in later fugues (that is, it doesn't contain the fugue subject). Fugues 2 and 3 are in 12/8 meter and also make much use is made of repeated notes, which gives them a gentle bounce. Fugue 4 returns to Common time, but not only continues the repeated notes but adds a snappy ornament to the subject. The subject for Fugue 5 has a sing-songy quality which seems best dealt with by playing verty fast. Fugues 6 and 7 continue with the repeated note subject. Fugues 8 and 9 introduce a series of ascending fourths into the subject, and Fugue 10 has a reveille-like motiv which calls definite attention to every entrance.
