Swinging Fugue for Twelve Notes, no. 3 - (2014)   

for piano


A breaking of the "hexachords" into diatonic halves offers a fugue subject which is easily recognized in its various tonal regions and references. The "row" is stated twice in the three-note statements at the opening, and then a variant begins the moderato before the accompanied fugue begins in earnest.
