ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It has been a lifelong dream to write a series of preludes and fugues for piano in ascending key order. In a way, it was to prove to myself the viability of writing in a completely tonal manner, having come from the atonal school of the 1960s.

C - A brilliant toccata followed by a happy fugue with the subject inverted occasionally.
Db - Based on the form of Liszt's 'Forest Murmurs' the prelude is fantasy-like and free of form. The fugue is the opposite and is filled with invertible counterpoint combinations based on a 'sturdy' subject.
D - The prelude is an Overture, complete with a big fugue in the standard ABA format. The fugue subject is long and rhythmic.
Eb - The prelude is the original piano version of what has become my 'hit single' song: How Sweet the Moonlight. The fugue features stretti throughout, including augmentations and diminutions.
E - The toccata is a real finger breaker although it sounds quite happy, whereas the fugue is angular and moody.
F - The opening fantasy follows the form of Bach's organ fantasia in G Minor. The following fugue is a transcription of the original version for organ in Eb.
F# - Serene from beginning to end is the texture of the prelude. The fugue is mystical, becoming brilliant towards the end.
G - The prelude incorporates the fugue and uses materials from the original finale to my organ concerto.
G# - The prelude is entitled 'The Storm,' and is aptly named. The fugue is titled 'The Calm,' and is exactly a depiction of serenity.
A - Both the prelude and fugue are jolly, the prelude like a gigue.
Bb - The gloomy prelude is perhaps my most difficult movement for piano. It is followed by a 'happy' fugue.
B - The prelude is entitled 'Music Box.' The fugue is optimistic, with a brilliant ending.
