In music , a fugue ( pron.: / ˈ f juː ɡ / FEWG ) is a contrapuntal compositional technique in two or more voices , built on a subject ( theme ) that is introduced at the beginning in imitation (repetition at different pitches) and recurs frequently in the course of the composition. The English term fugue originated in the 16th century and is derived from the French word fugue or the Italian fuga . This in turn comes from Latin, also fuga , which is itself related to both fugere ("to flee") and fugare ("to chase"). [ 1 ] The adjectival form is fugal . [ 2 ] Variants include fughetta (literally, "a small fugue") and fugato (a passage in fugal style within another work that is not a fugue). [ 3 ]
