Prelude and Fugue in C minor - (2010)    

for organ


 

The prelude is a set of imitations, passed back and forth between manuals and pedal.

The fugue subject contains similar gestures which reach out to related domains while returning the tonic, with the answer at first in the appropriate dominant and then sometime harmonized with mediant colors according to the subject's overall shape.

 

6 pages, circa 4' 45" - an MP3 demo is here: 

 

The score is available as a free PDF download, though any major commercial performance or recording of the work is prohibited without prior arrangement with the composer. Click on the graphic below for this organ score.
