These two pieces together sound like three friends going on a road trip. The Prelude is all of them excitedly discussing where they want to go. Some voices are heard more than others at which point they start getting into a minor (ha ha…hm) disagreements that are quickly resolved amicably. The Fugue is the trip itself. Friend One gets in his car and drives to Friend Two’s house, picks up Friend Two at 1:10, then they pick up Friend Three (who’s gone and gotten them all coffee) at 1:15. These friends then tootle on their way. There’s a bit of backseat driving after they take a wrong turn (1:34), but they finally get to their destination (2:27) and happily natter on about how great it is for a while until it gets dark (2:47) and they turn for home.
At least, that’s what it sounds like to me.
