Misc. Comments

This is not a work by W.F. Bach, so far as I know, and the key is wrong in any event (it's very clearly in D major). What edition is the original uploaded typeset based on? What is the connection to W.F. Bach?

The work begins in B minor and the usual convention is to name the piece in the opening key (though there are exceptions). It ends in D major, which suggests that it's an excerpt from something.

In B minor? It does? The first "answer" is in A major, not D major or F minor as one expects in a B minor fugue; the A fourth note of the theme is clearly a passing tone, the opening subject is (rather, opens with) an arpeggiation of a D major chord. I still don't see the "begins in B minor" anywhere. (It could be an unusual B minor fugue with an answer in A- I admit one might find such things in WF Bach's works- but a simpler and more obvious and less Ptolemaic answer, so to speak, is that it's a D major fugue whose main theme has a chromatic elaboration by an A passing tone inbetween an A and a B, quickly resolved.) - ES
