12 Preludes and Fugues, Vol.2

David Borden
Performance Score
In stock


A master in the art of counterpoint, Borden initially derived the musical material of each of the preludes and fugues in this collection from the letters of the name of the person to whom it is dedicated. Using the Pythagorean numerology alphabet, the remaining letters in the name were matched to a number, and then these numbers were assigned to the pitches of a mode that best “fit” the name. Once a suitable mode was found, and each letter assigned its pitch, the rhythmic shape of the fugue subject was determined.


  • Prelude and Fugue 1 (for Neely Bruce)
  • Prelude and Fugue 2 (in memory of George Deem)
  • Prelude and Fugue 3 (for Alexei Aceto)
  • Prelude and Fugue 4 (for Gabe)
  • Prelude and Fugue 5 (for Rebecca)
  • Prelude and Fugue 6 (for Shep Shapiro)
