  1. I spent most sunday working on it and I think it to be decent enough for me to post it. Anyway, hope you enjoy it, here it is:
  2. Not much to say. I just spent most of yesterday working on it, and finally I could finish it today morning. I have intended it to be mostly playableas well, but I can't actually play it myself so I'm not really sure whether it is or isn't. P.S.: In case you people really hate how harpsichord sounds on mp3, please tell me. I play the violin, so I'm quite aware how awful can an instrument sound on mp3, specially if the listener actually knows the instrument and its sound qualities which in many cases are quite difficult to emulate propperly on a digital file. So, here it is:
  3. Thank you for answering. I'm aware I could have set ritardando marks or more ornaments (despite Musescore3 still lacking any specific function to make the first one possible). Regarding that specific modulation on bar 22, just to say it's not among my best. Regarding the whole (despite still uncomplete) piece, I've been recently told that rhythmic division changing is quite uncommon (for example in bars 26 to half 28 or within the very subject), in which 6/8 turns into 3/4 appears. I don't know to which extent is it supposed to be an unpleasant feature but I still didn't remove it at all. About the ending... Well, this piece just became one among the too many developed pieces I did not intend to finish due to lack of inspiration or... Well, just leaving them over to sleep and then finding myself unable to continue. I'm still trying to finish a couple others I've started since I uploaded this one, one of which (in B-flat major) I'm hoping to finish an upload soon. Thanks.
  4. Since last time I uploaded some of my works I've been struggling with countersubjects and trying my best at finishing any piece of mine into an acceptable counterpoint ar something relatively close to a fugue (perhaps it gets to be a fughetta). I've been unable to finish anything really, mainly because of lack of inspiration due to many other factors, but this one seems fairly good to me in comparison to my previous works (I also must humbly notice again that my previous pieces were... Well, not even worth being called "pieces" to current standards). But anyway, here it is: P.S.: it might be also noticed immediately that the audio is playing a harpsichord. To me, it just sounds better than the piano, at least using an open-source sound font. Thanks.
  5. Just re-uploaded the score and the audio after some corrections, such as the bass line of the progression in measures 64 to 66 or what I think to be an applied fifth in measure 46. Also changed the chord in the first-to-last measure into a (I think) Dsus4 chord (not really sure whether is alright or completely out of place...) Hey, I'm glad you liked it! In fact I was wondering why not using chords from the very first two measures, instead of sticking to the form as I had done before, and I wouldn't have imagined such success (by the way what I mean by succes here is having been able to finish the piece). Thank you!
  6. So I recently came up with a catchy subject and decided it to be developed on a different approach from my previous composing. I'm not really sure what is it supposed to be, neither on whether it uses counterpoint or not. To me this composition sounds more likely to be some sort of miliatry march, hence Allegro Marziale. I can't say to have succesfully avoided every single harmonic mistake posible, since I might have utterly failed on it as usual. Anyway, here it is. Hope it not to be as awful as my earlier compositions.
  7. Unfortunately, the beginning of the school year has slowed down my composing and thus I haven't been able to finish any of the previous counterpoints I already had and those I started afterwards, until today. I likely began writing this fugue (in case it is) a week ago or so, and I put a lot of effort in avoiding forbidden parallels, although there are perhaps one or two of those and some instances of voice-crossing I was unable to solve. I had previously started another fugue in F (also in major mode), so this is my second one of that kind. I'm not intending to sound pedantic by saying this but... the subject sounds like something Bach could have come up with. I do not prouder! I'm just afraid that perhaps I unconsciously took parts from other Bach's subjects, because it reminds me a lot of his keyboard counterpoints in major mode, and despite some search I couldn't find anything strikingly similar but I still think I'm missing something. Anyway, here it is. It isn't as long as the one in F minor, but I hope you all enjoy it.
  8. Today I just finished another Heterodox Fugue; this time in F minor. What I mean by "Heterodox Fugue" (or invention, I don't know) is an imitative counterpoint which has some glides leading it right out of the conventional Baroque style. Hope you enjoy it!
  9. Thank you. Indeed, as for what I'm composing, I finally realized my pieces aren't fugues, not even strictly speaking. There are no stretti in this one either, however, the next one I'm going to post has two of them. Thank you very much. I still don't really know where does the difference rely among both imitative counterpoint forms. Is it the number of voices or how many episodes the piece has? Besides whether it's a fugue or an invention, I haven't ever studied harmony before. I'm neither trying to reproduce one-to-one baroque fugal composing despite Bach being my prime inspiration. I know, you might be wondering how dare I getting into imitative counterpoint while having no clear idea of how harmony works. Well, I don't even know the answer myself. It's just a sort of (hopefully not) temporary hobby I got into quite recently. Anyway, today I just finished another Heterodox Fugue; this time in F minor. What I mean by "Heterodox Fugue" (or invention, I don't know) is an imitative counterpoint which has some glides leading it out of the Baroque style. I'll post it straightaway as a new topic.
  10. I've been working for some weeks on fugues and counterpoint, and this is the third composition I could finish by now. In terms of perception, this fugue somehow sounds a bit meaningless to me in comparison to my previous works (those in the topic "My Fisrt Fugue"). What do you think about it? Is there something I could do to make it more interesting? Changing some chords maybe?
  11. It's me who should apologize. I don't know why did I say those things about my music and pretended to be offended (non-volitionally). Anyway, I could finish another "fugue" (from now on forth I'll write "fugue" with quotation marks for whichever 3-voice piece of mine) in A minor. Thank you all for advice.
  12. To some extent I've been aware that my composing isn't quite subject to Baroque rules from the very moment I finished the first one. Having previously started browsing and reading on counterpoint and, more specifically, on fugues, I didn't aimed to fully follow... Bach's methods, to humbly name his example as whose music I'm used to the most, (as it would be almost impossible for someone new to composing unless having researched on Bach's techniques for... 30 years by the way I'm not even half of maybe?). Even before reading the two previous post I renamed the C sharp minor invention as "Heterodox fugue", since after lots of corrections (harmony ones, not just realising that from the viewpoint of the Baroque style it's just a unconsciously made nonsensical piece of ****) the posted score and audio have ended up outdated again. I also started working on another two compositions, one of which had four voices and simply sounded awful, and previously left one unfinished, none of which I'm able to finish at the moment. Anyway, thank you for your answers.
  13. Thank you very much for your answer and feedback, @Tónskáld and @Luis Hernández. I just realized my composition wasn't what I said it to be a day after posting it, but I couldn't edit my post any more times (I had done once earlier). In fact, hence I couldn't edit to add new "versions" of my composition as I developed them, the audio and the score are now a bit outdated. I didn't add a third voice to that invention, but instead I started composing yesterday and finished today what, I think, could be an actual 3-voice fugue. Hope you like it.
  14. Hi. It's my first post here, and I would like to introduce myself by attaching the first of my works to this post and humbly asking for opinion. Quite recently (not even some hours ago), I tried my hand at composing with MuseScore (for the first time), and finally finished a 3-voice fugue in G minor. Hope it's up to the standards of this forum.
