Prelude and Fugue in D minor - (2012)
two-part texture sings momentary half-step dissonances within the tonic
minor, both natural and harmonic. Short episodes of diatonic clusters and
parallel triads break the texture and prepare its return.
fugue subject is a diminution of the prelude's opening theme, stressing both
the raised and lowered seventh within its span. Answers are in the expected
dominant with textural elements from the prelude appearing as counterpoint..
