Description
Fugue - most have long histories and are defineable forms - this is more modern, so less is known about it - there is constant repetition of key phrases and themes attached to them - after WW2, one poet heard a musical fugue and was inspired by its randomness - Bach Toccata and Fugue in D minor on the organ: the variation between the two melodies - death fugue about experiences during the holocaust - Todesfugue by Paul Celan: he interweaves phrases seemingly randomly to create meaning - it's impossible to make a narrative - it's very abstract, and carries more of an emotion/sense - this one is grim and gloomy - Night Piece, by Robin Skelton: there is a lot of repetition and it creates a longing effect - there is no narrative, just an expression of longing and love -
