Prelude and Fugue in B flat minor - (2010)
traditional B-A-C-H theme is subject of the prelude, in the same
relationships as the fugue, tonic and dominant. The second measure of the
opening phrase pitches it one one higher, with other quotes from this famous
four-notes found within the prelude.
fugue subject extends the B-A-C-H into an extended rising gesture to the
octave, in a dense, chromatic and compact fugue. Meno mosso and
maestoso feelings end the piece with the major third as in the prelude.
