Swingtime and Fugue in B minor - (2011)    

for piano


 

The sharper, dotted rhythms, marcato and major-minor seven chords of the opening announce a darker blues feel to this swingtime than some of the others in this ongoing collection.  

 

 

The fugue subject, as with others, is accompanied at the outset and small major-minor seven chords make short episodic fragments between tonic subject and dominant answer.

 

The score is 3 pages, with an approximate performance time of 3' 15."  

 

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.
