Swingtime and Fugue in G sharp minor - (2010)    

for piano


 

A rhythmic introduction to the main theme comes to a cadence with perhaps a little ritardando and then the theme takes hold. Open arpeggios accompany, and the rhythmic theme outlines additional episodic materials.

 

 

The brisk fugue takes up the swingtime's theme, and then moves quickly from statement to answer and back.

 

The score is 3 pages, with an approximate performance time of 2' 20."  

 

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.
