Dedicated to Frank Crisafulli

Variations and Fugue was initially composed for one of my classes at Northwestern University.  It’s form is somewhat influenced by Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.  I have always loved the moment when the chorale re-enters over the fugue and I desperately wanted to try to recreate that!

The opening chorale (theme) is original.  The first several notes are very similar to a Bach melody/chorale, but this is actually either a coincidence or product of my subconscience.
