Be a prelude to, running away and variation (Franck)
The Prelude, running away and variation , COp 18, is a composition for Orgue written by César Franck and dedicated to Camille Saint-Saëns. Written between 1860 and 1862, this work consists of four movements in the tone of if minor, but must be played connected, because they are conceived like one only element (sequence of the tonalities, pedals, etc).
Work is elaborate according to the forms and principles set up at the period baroque, according to the model used and developed by Johann Sebastian Bach in its compositions for organ:
- Prelude of choral: preparation of the musician to play the instrumental unit.
- Choral: usually regarded as the center of work, the choral represented here is very runs in duration, since it is composed of nine measurements (three periods).
- Running away: development contrapuntic within the unit.
- Variation on choral with imposed rate/rhythm: writing carried out according to the same model of the variation for organ Ich ruf' zu to dir Herr Jesu Christ of Bach.
The following extracts are transcriptions for Piano (and not of the reductions) of the partition of Orgue.

ChoralThe Choral is of slow tempo, with an ambiguity between if minor and minor F #.
Variation (Andantino)This part is a variation with three votes on the topic of the Prelude with imposed rate/rhythm. The higher voice plays the melody set of themes of the prelude, the low residence the same one as that written in the prelude, but the intermediate voice works out a melody speech, frequently in the form of arpeggios in a continum of semiquavers.
