Swingtime and Fugue in B flat major - (2011)    

for piano


The swingtime chortles in lower neighbor appoggiaturas as the triple meter plays against duples.  Blue note harmonies add to the fun.



The fugue subject is a simple diatonic line against its own pedal, with episodes lightly breaking away from the diatonic harmony.


The score is 4 pages, with an approximate performance time of 2' 40."  


The score is available as a free PDF download, though any major commercial performance or recording of the work is prohibited without prior arrangement with the composer. Click on the graphic below for this piano score.
