Retrofugue
for flute, bassoon, and piano
by Jeremy Crosmer- American composer

Retrofugue was written for Scott Bartlett in 2013, continuing the collaboration established in 2011 with Crosmer's Sonata for Bassoon, Piano, and Continuo Cello, The idea was to take a complex formal structure (fugue) and lace it with simpler, petite harmonic and melodic constructs. This trio meanders along the same veins of the Neo-Baroque, but in this case uses the term "Retro" in almost every sense imaginable. The fugue subject, which in itself is taken through transformations from the Renaissance to the Romantic, is also interlaced with episodes containing Disney-like melodies written in Crosmer's childhood. Many sections also musically reference the older Pop culture, dating from the 1970's and earlier.
