Programme Note:
I wrote a Fugue in f in 2001, and a Fugue in c# in 2007, and Fugue in b (2010) is the third in this long-term series of fugues I am hoping to write over my life. They are like entries in a stylistic journal, snapshots of my musical preoccupations. By re-imagining the fugal form each time, I crystallise my musical thinking down to its most technical, leaving poeticism to one side and allowing myself to abstract. In this fugue I am exploring two different ideas: firstly, using spectral matrices to determine pitch values; and secondly, hiding the themes and counterthemes in the unplayed notes inside clusters. Don’t expect to hear the fugal subject: it is played only with the mind of the pianist, not with her hands…

Premiere Information:
27 September 2010, Suginami Public Hall, Tokyo, Japan. Kaori Ohsuga, piano. Presented by the mmm... ensemble.
