Little Fugue in C minor - (2013)
This short fugue moves quickly between tonal domains, major in one instance
as well as the several minor domains. The melodic minor influences the
beginning of the subject which then ends in the harmonic minor, a second
appearance of the subject then comes quickly centered on B flat, before a
more normal answer in the dominant minor is heard. Short episodes break the
cascade of repetitions, and as with the lowered seventh as one of the
domains, an appearance in the supertonic also surprises. A last set of
cadenza-like gestures introduces a final two statements, the first in the
pedal and the last in a double-time notation.
