Sinfonia in G major


Recommended Posts

This is great!  The only comment I have about it is that it seems to be in 3/4 rather than 6/8.  The rhythmic identity of your motive is in duple rather than triple time.  It starts on beat 3 (beat 2 in 3/4) which is an off-beat in 6/8 (and given the slurry of consecutive 16th notes doesn't sound like a pick-up but instead accents that beat).  If you look at the whole rest of the sinfonia, there are many places that put an emphasis on beats that are off-beats in 6/8 but on the beat in 3/4 which contribute to this feeling.  Great job though.  The motive is long and has it's own characteristic identity that's memorable.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your valuable feedback. Yes your right about the time here... Lol basically I myself was too lazy about contemplating about the rythm and I was like: well too many notes in one bar? Let that be 6/8. I forgot to pay attention to the accents.

Why did you call it a Sinfonia? It's a fugue.

 

Basically it's not a well developed fugue with defined episodes and entries. It's light and uses mostly free counterpoint. Hence I thought considering it a 3 voiced invention (that is, 'Sinfonia') would be more apt. Thanks for listening
