Rondo and Fugue for Two Pianos
By Lawrence Dunning
RONDO AND FUGUE FOR TWO PIANOS
The stories in Rondo and Fugue for Two Pianos focus on the loneliness of the main characters in the midst of their ordinary or not so ordinary lives. They vary widely in time, place, and sometimes even in their tendency to intermingle reality and fantasy. They concern the worlds of art, music, urban culture (New York, San Francisco), Western regionalism (Colorado, Texas), and even the military importance of a small island in the Asian Pacific. The characters range from jazz and classical musicians, cowboys, abused women and women of royalty, a frightened young boy, a confused businessman, a CIA agent on holiday, and a soldier in a world unlike anything he has ever known. Ultimately, in their individual ways they tend to find a place in their lives to stop or change direction, to wonder for a moment what could be if things were different.
