Program Notes

Prelude & Fughetta was composed during March 2005 on commission from Madison High School in New Jersey. The inspiration for the music came from the poem You and I and the World by Swedish poet Werner Aspemström. The dignified simplicity of the text seems to me to contain universal truths. I attempted to mirror this simplicity in the music and to maintain a consistency and seriousness throughout the composition that contrasts with much of my other work.

Two traditional musical structures are used in the composition. The prelude uses a "ground bass" harmonic pattern to underlie the sequential melodic pattern. Traditional "fugue" form is used in the fughetta. By employing these two typical baroque procedures I hoped to pay tribute to the timeless quality of the poem and to imitate its two-part structure.
