Prelude and Fugue in B minor - (2011)
6/4 prelude is long-lined, with a decorative alto voice in the chorale
texture answering the decorations in the top line. The mood of the slow arch
is broken by arpeggios spanning the keyboard as later by an embellishment of
a decoration into contrasting statement. The prelude ends with a reprise of
the opening mood.
fugue changes the tempo in relation and ratio to the prelude while keeping
the meter. Successive entries of the subject and interjections of material
from the prelude continue the longer fugue to its final truncated statement
and closing in octaves without third or fifth.
