Prelude, Chorale and Fugue (Franck)

Prelude, Chorale and Fugue for solo piano is a work written in 1884 by the Belgian composer César Franck.

As the name implies, it comprises three movements: a prelude, a chorale and a fugue. The interconnectedness and thematic relationships (particularly the cyclic recall of the prelude and chorale in the fugue) make this an unorthodox example of double-function form.

This work is an exemplar of Franck's distinctive use of cyclic form.

It uses a Chromatic fourth motif in the Chorale and the Fugue.
