Prelude and Fugue in G major - (1997)
The cascades of major sevenths as the bottom note of these chords breaks
with the traditional common practice harmonic structures and voice leadings,
all the while remaining rooted in common practice tonalities. The phrase
lengths vary asymmetrically as the prelude proceeds, with a quiet center
section before a reprise of the opening gestures..
prelude ends with a diatonic polytonality, clearly in G major. The fugue
subject is a simple jog tune in 12/8, echoing the triadic gestures of the
prelude now broken into arpeggios.
