Composed by David Borden. Piano (Solo). Performing score. Duration 00:22:00. Edition Peters #PREPE202. Published by Edition Peters (PE.PREPE202).

A master in the art of counterpoint, Borden initially derived the musical material of each of the preludes and fugues in this collection from the letters of the name of the person to whom it is dedicated. Using the Pythagorean numerology alphabet, the remaining letters in the name were matched to a number, and then these numbers were assigned to the pitches of a mode that best “fit” the name. Once a suitable mode was found, and each letter assigned its pitch, the rhythmic shape of the fugue subject was determined.
