Prelude and Fugue in E minor - (2012)
alternation of natural and harmonic minor play out through the prelude in
two measure spans, a chromatic run upwards and a set of clusters providing
rhetorical punctuation between repetitions.
fugue subject is a Gestalt of two voices emphasizing the natural
minor as it begins with the minor sixth and seventh together in a falling
gesture answered in the next with an upward sweep. The short fugue ends with
alternating phrases of the fugue passing between upper and lower registers.
