Prelude and Fugue in B minor - (2012)
prelude opens with the natural minor, harmonies which easily suggest the
relative major. After opening gestures, the raised sixth and seventh as well
as the leading tone to the dominant color more clearly the return to the
tonic. Bright 32nd note arpeggios provide a contrast to the opening gambit
before a return.
fugue subject is the harmonic minor in a simple rising scale, with
additional phrases and syncopation. The answers appear in the expected
dominant and tonic.
