Program Notes

In psychiatry, a fugue state refers to a temporary condition where the mind flees from reality. Fugal sections in this very original work paint a musical picture of this psychological condition. The dissonant writing evolves as a musical flight through a series of sections in contrasting styles in a fascinating musical scenario.
