Prelude and Fugue in C sharp minor - (2011)
Clusters of triads build dense, textural harmonies on the tonic, after which
two contrasting segments sing out, the first as at measure seven and its
moving away from and back towards the tonic minor, and the longer lined yet
simple three voice motet as at measure sixteen. The lowered supertonic
features throughout as a coloristic and cadential device.
fugue subject also features the lowered supertonic in its midst, while
rising a fifteenth before the answer is stated at the dominant. At measure
56, the subject moves to the D major region for a moment, before answers in
the dominant minor and then the tonic in the lowest voice.
