Composer's Notes
Retrofugue was written for Scott Bartlett in 2013, continuing the collaboration established in 2011 with Crosmer's Sonata for Bassoon, Piano and Continuo Cello . The idea was to take a complex formal structure (fugue) and lace it with simpler, petite harmonic and melodic constructs. This trio meanders along the same veins of the Neo-baroque, but in this case uses the term Retro in almost every sense imaginable (except for the musical one, of a melody played backwards). The fugue subject, which in itself is taken through transformations from the Renaissance to the Romantic, is also interlaced with episodes containing Disney-like melodies written in Crosmer's childhood. Many sections also musically reference the older Pop culture, dating from the 1970's and earlier.
