Preludes and Fugues.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

Recently I saw an article in the YC Wiki about a set of 24 Preludes and Fugues written by different members of YC. 

Later, I released they were from about a decade ago, and I think we should write a new set. 

If anyone is interested to take part in this, signal your interest by commenting below. I will create a club which people can join and we will hopefully be able to create a full set.

It would be interesting to see how people approach this, and we would post any works in the forums for critique as normal.

I hope we can do this,

Αν και είμαι νέος στην σπουδή της φούγκας,θα ήθελα να συμμετάσχω. Δεν θα μπορώ να γράψω κάτι άμεσα. (Αυτή τη στιγμή σπουδάζω την φάση της "Έκθεσης" 
Πρελούδιο όμως θα μπορέσω. Είναι κάτι πιο εύκολο.  Θα ήθελα να προτείνω μία ιδέα: 
Να κάνουμε κάτι σαν την "Τέχνη της φούγκας" του Μπαχ. Να βρούμε ένα απλό θέμα και να δουλέψουμε μόνο με αυτό για τα 24 πρελούδια και φούγκες.  
Μπορούμε να βρούμε ένα όμως σωστό θέμα για φούγκα.


Although I am new to the study of the fugue, I would like to join. I will not be able to write anything directly. (I am currently studying the "Exhibition"
But prelude I can. It's easier. I would like to suggest an idea:
Do something like Bach's "Art of Fugue." Let's find a simple theme and work only with this for the 24 preludes and fugues.
But we can find a right topic about fugue.

Απλά θα πρέπει να ορίσουμε τους κανόνες.
Θεωρώ πως θα πρέπει να μιλήσουμε για το στιλ της φούγκας.
Μοντέρνο, Κλασσικό; Επίσης να ορίσουμε το μουσικό μοτίβο πάνω στο οποίο θα δουλέψουμε.

We just have to set the rules.
I think we should talk about the fugue style.
Modern, Classic? Also define the musical motif on which we will work.

I will join as well. Will we each be assigned a key signature (or more than one, depending on the number of participants)? 

(Edit: I only ask because the number 24 immediately made me think of Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier.)

I'm in.

Maybe the fugue might be a trouble (I know some counterpoint, but not good at it), since i know his structure and how works I can at least make a fugue, the problem will be many mistakes as it will be my first, and that, but I will pleased a lot.

- We will define a theme?

- How will the asigment of key work? If possible I would like D minor (that's the key :P)
- Which style we will use? Baroque? Any classical one (romanticism, classical, baroque, etc)? Or free to use?

- There's a restriction, minimum for voices? (theres exist 1 voiced fugues, or 2, shouldn't it at least be 3?)

If given the theme I think i can make some good stuff for the prelude, at least.
