Serial Fugue Subject: Raiding the "Enemy" Camp

All I have to say is "Ha!", and "this is going to rock!": A twelve-tone row fugue subject that still establishes pitch axes, so it can be broadly interpreted tonally. It is positively screaming "wind trio", no? Can't you just feel the love? (And hear the augmented sixths?). It even has stretto possibilities. I kill me.

I actually thought of this a while back, but didn't have the technique to tackle it. I might even try to cram it onto the guitar (Though, we do actually have a competent wind trio in Alpine, Texas, believe it or not).
