Marie Prestat, Fugue in C minor
Marie Josephine Claire Prestat (1862-1933), a favorite student of CÚsar Franck, was the first woman to win four first prizes at the Paris Conservatoire. These were for Harmony (1885), Accompaniment (1886), Counterpoint and Fugue (1889) and Organ (1890). She was Professor of Piano and Organ at the Schola Cantorum from 1901 until 1922. The treatment of the subject of the fugue suggests the influence of Bach's Great A minor Fugue (BWV 543).
