Sketches 5x5 - 3. Fugato



Movement 3, this time featuring bass clarinet (backed by flute, clarinet, alto sax and soprano sax, all performed by composer Alexis Marsh). There are a handful of jazz-inflected fugues from the repertoire that I absolutely love, in particular by Franz Waxman and Leonard Bernstein. It seemed time to undertake one, even if in the miniature / sketch format ...

I went with an obvious metaphor for layers and multiplicity here. Better than yesterday's attempt.
