Chromatic Fugue in G minor - (2012)
brief and rather consonant introduction moving from major to minor, the
double fugue subject consists of the upper line moving in ever smaller leaps
up and down over a rising line of half steps. Underpinned by the tonal
region, from tonic to dominant, the first answer comes at measure nine. With
some diversions from the dominant and tonic in G minor, the fugue also
creates its own counterpoint at the octave and fifth in ensuing statements.
Below, the subject in the tonic minor is answered two measures later in the
lower parts in the dominant. Then the harmonic regions are reversed answered
a measure apart. Later instances also have the double subject displaced in
time at the octave. The fugue ends with an open fifth, neither major nor
pages, circa 3' 50" - an MP3 demo is here:
