Shostakovich composed his 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. While that ordering does not necessarily imply a thematic much less a dramatic continuity between the pairs of preludes and fugues, sometimes there are thematic connections, which may in turn imply a dramatic continuity. For example, the prelude of the E minor Prelude and Fugue that follows the G major pair takes the nervously syncopated countertheme of the G major's prelude, slows it down from quarter note equals to quarter note equals , and turns it to the melancholy minor. Clearly, Shostakovich intended the connection to be recognized and the transformation to be heard. He also clearly intended for the final bars of the prelude's way of dwelling on the major and minor third of its main harmony to register deeply in the mind of the listener. Similarly, the E minor's four-voice fugue takes the upward rushing subject of the G major's fugue for its first subject, slows it down from Allegro molto to Adagio, changes its note values from sixteenths to halves and quarters, and turns it to a pensive and despairing E minor.
