Finzi, Gerald : Prelude and Fugue  op. 24 (1938)  8'

for string trio

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.

Repertoire Note

Conceived as a tribute to Finzi’s renowned teacher R O Morris, this piece follows contrapuntal disciplines with a strictness of which the dedicatee would certainly have approved. With its piquant dissonances the music follows a Purcellian tradition, whilst standing alone as the only chamber piece for strings within the Finzi catalogue.
