Preludes and Fugues, Op. 16

Editor: Sylvia Glickman

Item: 490-01112

for piano

Composed in 1847, these 3 preludes and fugues are the skillful result of Clara Schumann's study of counterpoint. The first Prelude maintains a poignancy similar to the first movement of her Piano Trio. The following Fugue is a well-crafted, vigorous piece of music. Prelude #2, is a self-contained, graceful allegretto, while fulfilling its role of preparing the ear for the key of the ensuing fugue, a serious rhythmic work. The themes of the prelude and fugue of the third set are rhythmically related, both earnest andantes.

Two Works for Solo Piano

Editor: John Michael Cooper

Item: 490-01185

The two works in this publication are Tangamerican and Fugal Dance. In the words of editor John Michael Cooper, Tangamerican is melodically, harmonically, and stylistically rich, but succinct – just thirty-eight measures long – two and a half minutes in “tempo tango.” Fugal Dance is extraordinarily complex musically. This notable work has a dramatic shape that proceeds from dissonance, confusion, and strife to a sense of victory and triumph.
