Little Tango and Fugue in E - (2013)    

for piano


Beginning in the minor with some emphasis on the natural lowered sixth and altered raised fourth of the minor tonic, the themes mingle and move into the major with new motives added.



The fugue is accompanied at the outset in one of the traditional tango rhythms, answered in the dominant, and then motives from the tango mix with the fugue subject in its next appearances.
