Title: Johann Sebastian Bach: Fúga č. 22 b mol BWV 867
Author: Wolfgang Schmutz

Abstract: When we apply the numeric alphabet on the name BACH, we will get: 2 + 1 + 3 + 8 = 14. The digit sum of the number 14 is 1 + 4 = 5! The Prelude and Fugue No. 22 in B flat minor BWV 867 from the first volume of The Well-Tempered Clavier is a five-voice piece set into the minor key of the first letter of Bach’s name which has 5 flats. The analysis of the work on the basis of numbers and number symbolism reveals and poses unprecedented riddles, whose solution confirms the presupposition that this work was especially important for J. S. Bach.
