Prelude and Fugue in B major - (2012)
Alternating triads, rooted on the sixth and the tonic, sing out the opening
gambit. An answering phrase completes the statement in a series of
sequences, the long arch ending first on the subdominant. A repeat shifts
the mood towards emphasis on the sixth in major with a development of the
opening gambit and the inclusion of the 32nd note gesture which hints at the
fugue to follow.
fugue subject is of two voices appearing together, a third voice coming into
play after the first statement. Varying episodes play their expected role in
extending the form.
