Fugue No. 1 for harpsichord

Recommended Posts

All in all, not a bad -albeit little- fugue. I love the rhythm used for the fugue subject. I think one bit of a change I would of added, would be a contrasting countersubject. Something perhaps in a slower rhythm, but strong enough to provide more material to elongate the fugue with. Not a bad fugue, though. Almost video-game sounding!

Good fugue.

The fast tempo / rhythm / notes combined with the harpsichord is, however, disturbing for me. This can also be caused by the digital audio.
This same mush of fast notes makes it difficult to recognize the subject. Maybe you can slow down the tempo so that you give the audience more time to understand the music. In my opinion, there needs to be a evident countersubject, because I think that one of the elements that makes the fugue such a strong form is the contrast between the subject and counter-subjects.

I like the subject!

Thanks for the comments. I do think the perfect computer rhythm makes it harder to hear the subject. It is one of the stranger fugues I have written so I get what you guys are saying about it being a bit confusing on first listening.
