    Prelude and Fugue ~ Ian Lawson
    Programme note
    Prelude and Fugue is one of many occasional short piano pieces which, like much of my music, is heavily informed by the ‘popular’ musics of our day. The aim was to write a conventional Bach-like fugue (with contrapuntal devices) that never-the-less inhabits the same sound-world as certain strands of modern jazz. This is not jazz that is ‘jazzy‘ however there are stompin’ basses and blue notes. This is a more European modal jazz with elements of the new world creeping in the Prelude. The work was written piecemeal over a long period of time with final revisions made in 2016.
