For Frank Gehry on his 90th birthday
Fog is a 90th birthday tribute to Frank Gehry. It is a fantasy around the Bach E major Prelude from Partita in E (BWV 1006), whose harmonic and melodic structure is almost omnipresent, sometimes clearly identifiable, sometimes veiled or completely hidden. This work by Bach was the first piece of music Frank and I heard in the Walt Disney Concert Hall while it was still under construction. Much of the of the harmony is based on Frank’s name: F A G E H (B natural in English).
