Prelude and Fugue in F sharp minor - (2010)
three-voice introduction introduces the tonality while avoiding the dominant
at its cadences. Thereafter a long-lined melody in the top voice is
accompanied by moving interior voices and a gently pulsing bass line. The
lowered supertonic is a harmonic feature of the prelude, as well as of the
final extended cadence.
fugue subject includes the raised fourth, for the augmented second of the
scale, and the answer appears in the dominant by way of the melodic minor
variant of this fugue generally in its harmonic minor.
