Humoresque and Fugue in G minor - (2012)    

for piano


 

The alternation of tonic minor and a minor built on the harmonic seventh of the scale serves as the opening gambit and this harmonic relationship becomes the motive for the work in general. It is answered by a chromatic run set against parallel diatonic chords and then the half cadence.

 

 

The fugue's appoggiaturas echo the harmonic motive of before, as a fugal treatment's counterpoint is colored by this.
