Humoresque and Fugue in A major - (2011)
Light-hearted thirds with decorative appoggiaturas make the opening gambit,
the long phrase then repeated an octave below. An answering statement
contrasts with it, and the simple three-part form rushes to its gentle
fugue echoes the harmonic flavors of the humoresque, and restatements appear
throughout the range of the keyboard, including a short dalliance altering
the statement into the submediant harmonic minor -- but just for a moment.
