Prelude and Fugue in G major - (2012)
"Lower neighbors" appear as an independent voice against the arpeggio in the
tonic major, as an up tempo, opening gesture. Set into longer phrases with
partial cadences, they comprise the A material against which the contrasting
B as at measure 12 shows. Chromatic runs and syncopations complete the
subject for this fugue is the same as for the prelude, the lower neighbors
now leading to their referents. A small punctuation in a second voice
heightens the fun of the syncopation. Short episodes break the texture in
this very short and presto fugue.
