Very good! Sounds nice and you seem to be able to recreate the style really well!

 

My only qualm is that the first presentation of the subject is a bit too long for my taste, but I still think it's a great work, and something that you should be very proud of. Hope you keep on composing!

Congratulations!  This is quite an achievement!  I actually like that the subject is so long - it gives the fugue lots of possibility for a long-drawn out development although I must say that I thought you ended it prematurely.  I'm not even sure if this isn't technically a double fugue as following the exposition of the first subject you immediately go into a really cool stretto of a previously unheard 3-measure subject although I don't know if you think of that as some kind of episode.  I might be nit-picky when I say this but I feel like there were some moments that sounded concatenated like measure 32 when the middle entry of the subject in Bb major sounds cut off in my opinion.  I do like how throughout the fugue, you vary the counterpoint instead of sticking to your initial idea for a counter-subject.  Great high quality episodes and a nice variety of keys that you modulated to in your middle entries!  Thanks for sharing!

I really liked your fugue. I am not close to the baroque style, but I really like the music of Bach as performed by Glenn Gould. The spirit, the will and, in a good sense, the effort and tension that he puts into playing this music.

These same things touch and pull me as a listener in your composition and for that I like it. I also feel that the fugue, the form, are not the core here, do not become an end in themselves, but only play on the realization of your idea, and for that I like this work even more, and I wonder what you will do in the future
