Programme Note

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), which 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).
