Prelude and Fugue No. 2 follows manyof the traditions created by Bach, but develops them with a 21stcentury language. Inspired by the writings of Shostakovich, Daniel Farrelldevelops a Prelude and Fugue pair that share a common motivic idea. The Prelude features harmonic ambiguity andintroduces several ideas to be found within the Fugue. The Fugue is afour voice, double fugue infused with chromatic saturation and a tonal languageat home within the 21st century. The slower middle sectionintroduces the second fugue subject, while the first fugue subject, inretrograde, becomes the new countersubject. The two subjects are featured instretto at the end of the piece in a dramatic finish.”

“Performer Note: Like most of Bach’s Preludes and Fugues,Daniel Farrell’s Prelude and Fugue seriesdoes not feature dynamic markings or specific tempo indications. This is forthe player to decide and to explore their own musical sensibilities.”
