Prelude and Fuguétude : for large string ensemble / Alexander Voltz.

Library shelf no. 784.7/VOL 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Although Prelude & Fuguétude bears no dedicatee, I had a very specific person in mind whilst writing it. Whether the work is about me or them, though, remains to be seen. Perhaps obviously, it contrasts two stages of grief with a more or less absurd title. Less obvious is what those stages of grief actually are, and why they will not dissipate.
