We present four pieces by Claudi Meneghin, in 15-equal division of the octave, notated as usual in the following way:
- B~C = 0 ¢
- D = 240 ¢
- E~F = 480 ¢
- G = 720 ¢
- A = 960 ¢
- #/b = +/- 80 ¢
1) Cuckoo-Rag fugue
Cuckoo-Rag fugue is a one-minute fugue recorder, cor anglais, clarinet, bassoon, using a rag-like subject and the cuckoo tune as a countersubject. Tuning is 15edo (15 equal division of the octave), used in the following two ways: in the first part of the fugue, the entries of the fugue are each one at a fifth from the preceding one, whereas in the second part at a fourth.
2) Micro-Fugue on "Scotland the Brave"
A five-part microfugue (in 15-equal division of the octave) on a theme derived from "Scotland the Brave", for Soprano & Alto Sax, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Suckbut, in the tonality of C. Each entry is a fourth higher (+480 ¢ in 15edo) than the preceding one, thus the fugue gets back to the initial tonality C after five entries (5*480 ¢ = 2400 ¢).
3) Tocada, for 2 Organs
A piece for 2 organs, in three movements (Preludi i Fugat, Chaconne “La Gamme”, Fugueta).
- Preludi & Fugat
The Preludi (Catalan for "Prelude") is made up by 5 sections, each at +720 cents from the preceding one. Each one, internally, sticks to the following modulation structure : 0, +400, +800, 0, +720;
The Fugat (Catalan for "Fugato") is made up by 5 sections, each at +240 cents from the preceding one and ends on C (pedal).
- Chaconne “La Gamme” (French for "The Scale")
This chromatic piece is made up by 15 sections, each at +80 cents from the preceding one (starts from F and ends to F), plus a Coda, made up by the following chord progression: (D,C,F,A) - (E,B,E,G#) ~ (240,0,480,880) - (400,1120,400,800)
- Fugueta (Catalan for "Little fugue") This fast movement is made up by five main sections obeying the following modulation rules:

2nd: C +480 +480 +480 +480 +480
3rd: C +240 +240 +240 +240 +240 (modified mirrored theme)
