Prelude and Fugue in E major - (2011)   

for piano


 

Four voice harmonies move in opening phrases, to set up the jaunty left-hand theme at measure 8 and a second related to it at measure 13.

 

 

The fugue subject is taken directly from the prelude, and then treated to accompanying gestures in the manner of the prelude as well as complimentary counterpoint, statements ranging across the range of the instrument.
