Prelude and Fugue in F minor
Written arpeggios of an F minor chord form including the major seventh (and
later major sixth) form the subject of the prelude. A cluster in the
harmonic minor provides a pivot, after which gestures based on this simple
chord sing an arch in the higher register of the piano. Reprises of both
textures further lengthen the form.
fugue refers to the tonic harmonic minor with its added major seventh.
Arpeggios decorate episodes as the subject works its way through various
entrances on the dominant and tonic, with textures from the prelude
referenced and a final cadence on the tonic minor includes both the major
sixth and seventh.
