My best try at a 4 part fugue

Recommended Posts

I still wonder why many of us want to write this kind of fugues.

The idea of counterpoint is very attractive in our minds. But to resemble classic counterpoint, we have to follow the basic rules.

There are many collisions in the writing for example:

First you have C+E+D, in strong point

Second you hae D + B + C, idem

Also there are parallels: here a fifth

Controlling four voices is quite hard. I think that if one wants to start with fugues, do it with two voices.

What are the other types of fugues?
