Little Fugue in A minor - (2012)    

for piano


 

A brief opening establishes the tonality and gesture which recurs in the fugue proper. The fugue subject is rooted in A minor, but includes all twelve tones within the octave as well. Episodes break away from the insistence of the subject-answer with clear chromaticism at times, and the final statement is in octaves.
