Program Notes

Prelude and Fugue is a contemporary version of the genre made famous by J.S. Bach. It begins with a somewhat Brahmsian prelude, which builds and becomes progressively passionate, dissonant, and technically challenging. When the prelude is finally about to resolve, it is interrupted by a wild, angular, and intense fugue. The fugue eventually begins to relax, and when the prelude returns set against the fugue, it is finally able to reach its full resolution.
