  1. Below is my first attempt at a fugue written for two violins. as such it isn't a conventional fugue as there is voice swapping across the board and does not necessarily follow the conventional harmonic series as I didn't pay too much attention and wrote this in a couple hours. Enjoy.
  2. Hey one of my next projects is a 3 voiced Fugue for two violins. could someone give me a quick rundown on how effective double stopping is in violin writing. EG how easy or difficult it is to move scales in thirds fourth etc Great much appreciated.
  3. This is the first time that I improvised a fugue subject and multiple countersubjects and didn't immediately come across contrapuntal errors with my Check Harmony Rules plugin in Musescore. I haven't bothered to look more in depth though(like every note kind of depth). So there might be some errors that I missed. I want to resolve these before I move further with the fugue. As you can probably tell by the PDF file, I wrote this fugue exposition with the text of a Requiem in mind, specifically, the Introit, which is the first section of a Requiem mass. Augmented intervals, those most likely have to do with the leading tone combined with the minor key and thus, shouldn't be bothered with, right, so as to not stray away from the key too fast? Or are they unacceptable, even in minor keys? Here is the fugue exposition in image form, so as to highlight the Subject and 3 countersubjects: There, that is the fugue exposition. I figured that this Requiem fugue would be one of the best fugues for which the subject appearance order would be BTAS, or in other words ascending, to represent the ascent to heaven(I'm personally not religious, but I know some things about religion). Did I obey the counterpoint rules and write a good fugue exposition with 3 countersubjects? Or are there some errors that I missed? I mainly focused on not having parallel and direct octaves, fifths, and fourths, and not having too many parallel thirds or sixths, so I might have missed errors of unresolved dissonances and weak suspensions that did not get picked up on a first pass.
  4. After a two-year hiatus, for the month of December I decided to go back working on this set of 26 minuets which I have been working on off from 2016 to 2017, and stopped in 2018 when I have other things to work on. Here's the status of the minuets as of April 2018: Anyway, after that and up till December, I have gained new musical knowledge and experiences which can be reflected in this new version of the set. More dynamics are added, the pitch range has also been expanded as well and incorporating other forms (Rondo and Sonata) into a few of the minuets as well. Many of the musical ideas for the minuets are taken from several sight-reading books, string quartets by Mozart and Haydn and other composition and theory workbooks. It has been quite a lot of fun finishing the set, exploring new musical ideas and many major/minor keys, and through this I have grown as a composer. I plan to move beyond the piano and work on a set of preludes and fugues for string quartet after this. I also hope to live record these minuets one day, especially the whole tone (XXV). Any suggestions on how to improve, or if you need to understand some of my thinking behind the minuets, you can say so in the comments. (I'm still working on a commentary by the way, but need to tell you that the last uses two different octatonic scales for the minuet and trio respectively.) For those who are not able to listen to the whole set, I suggest looking into these: II (A minor), IV (E minor), VI (E minor), VII (A major), IX (E major), XII (G sharp minor), XIII (F sharp/ G flat major), XIV (E flat minor), XVI (B flat minor), XIX (E flat major), XX (C minor), XXIII (F major), XXIV (D minor), XXV (Homage to Debussy), XXVI (Homage to Prokofiev).
  5. Here is my contribution for the Christmas Event. Carol of the Bells is, by far, one of my favorite works. I just hope this fugue gives it justice.
  6. I am embarrassed that it took me a year to 'complete' two compositions (Obsidian and Voile d'automne). People in this forum wisely advised that I should 'lose my first hundred compositions quickly', so as to learn from my errors and move on. So this morning (Christmas eve) I determined to complete an albeit short composition in a day. Here it is, a simple fugue. I sketched the basic idea while out walking in a local wood, transcribed it when I arrived home, and developed it through the day. I hope that I have avoided orthographic issues, which have dogged much of my work to date. As the complexity of the piece increased, I realised that dynamics play an important role. I use MuseScore both for transcription and for playback. With MuseScore playback the scored dynamics work (reasonably) well, and I hope that this remains the case with the MP3 file. One of the issues I soon discovered is that I had to cheat by altering some notes to avoid unwanted dissonances. I should appreciate guidance on how I ought to be handling the issue. I participate in this forum because I am eager to learn. Feedback will be gratefully received. In an early scene in Roman Polanski's movie of Thomas Hardy's novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles, a bevy of young woman dressed in white dance round a maypole. The simple country music swells as the observer approaches the maypole, and falls again as the viewer departs. Happy Christmas.
  7. I spent most sunday working on it and I think it to be decent enough for me to post it. Anyway, hope you enjoy it, here it is:
  8. There is my 3-part fugue in G major. What do you think? EDIT: I finally composed a short prelude
  9. I Like composing music for fun, but I am trying to learn how to compose Fugues like J.S. Bach. I have tried composing a few and I've been trying to learn how to have independent voices. I still need to perfect counterpoint and harmony and there may be too many consecutive fifths and octaves. Does anyone know how I can improve my fugue composing skills so this can actually be called a fugue? Ed's_Prelde_and_Fugue_in_A_major.pdf The audio for this score can be found here. https://musescore.com/user/10553021/scores/4692441
  10. I think this is a (proper) Fugue, but I would like confirmation, etc, fugue2?.mid
  11. My first proper attempt at writing something baroquey. I was wondering, what's the best way to describe this piece, academically speaking. Fughetta, Fugue, Double Fugue, Counter fugue?
  12. I've always wanted to try writing a piece for organ. Though he didn't write much for organ, I am a big fan of Mozart's organ music and in particular his Fantasy in F minor which inspired this work in terms of structure and the fugal subject which is similar, though otherwise I treated the sections very differently. It is generally organized as a chaconne-like theme and variations in pairs separated by two extended sections (a fugato and a more lyrical section). I had posted an unfinished version of this in the incomplete section and I greatly appreciated the feedback. I also plan to transcribe a version for string orchestra.
  13. I was wondering about how to start writing a fugue? I understand they are hard to play, so is there a good process? I mean like composing in front of a piano kind of way. Help appreciated!
  14. This is a three voice fugue written for harpsichord. Let me know any thoughts you have about it. Thanks!
  15. There's not much to say about this piece, it is a three-part fugue with modest pretensions in that sweetest of keys, D minor. Like my canons the primary material is derived from encoded names in mod-7 form with free accidentals.
  16. I was going to copyright this piece but I don't really know if it's good enough to do that quite yet. I was looking for feedback on it so I can change it before it gets properly cemented the way it is. Specifically, the basic low strings part and the countersubject I wasn't sure how well they were implemented. Thanks a lot and enjoy!
  17. Hi! I researched fugues recently and decided to try my hand at creating one. I did also use a ground bass, introduced in the first four measures. Feedback about the development section would be helpful, as well as any mistakes I made in the subject section. Thanks! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bw9QZZ62AveGRFZ0U1J4QVZITDA
  18. Prelúdio e Fuga (SAT).mp3 This is a Prelude and Fugue for recorder trio (soprano, alto and tenor). I composed it for a trio (which was a quartet, but one person gave up) I would take part in, but then the whole group "ceased to exist" without a single rehearsal with everybody (= 3 people). The Prelude and Fugue continues to existe, but now without a concrete destiny. Hope you enjoy^^ OBS: I changed the VST to flutes because Garritan's recorder sound is a scream of pain from hell. OBS2: I didn't put dynamics, articulations or anything else because I'm lazy.
  19. Here is a short, one-minute exercise I wrote to prepare for the upcoming fugue competition. In general, I tried to keep it simple, sticking to the basics of the form (exposition, a couple of episodes, a short coda). As for counterpoint, it's really not my strong suit, so I tried to incorporate as much contrary motion as possible, especially between the cello and the upper instruments. I also tried to keep to the idea of dissonance on strong beats and consonance on weak beats as much as possible. I've never written a fugue before, and I'm sure there's plenty I did wrong, so any pointers or corrections would be very welcome!
  20. So, I'm reposting old stuff because they're somehow gone. This is one of them. Enjoy^^
  21. This is an edit I did to a piece I wrote for school. I wanted something a little more professional sounding and not so humorous. I added a prelude to the fugue to give it some length and more opportunity to show my writing. I plan to use this as part of my portfolio for college, so any suggestions are welcome. Doesn't have to be about the piece, could be about what else to include in the portfolio. Sheet music is also available to see any engraving issues. There's probably a lot.
  22. First and foremost; I do not know anything about string playing. As a result of such inadequacy, there are maybe some double stops (don't think triple stops) that are a bit hard to play. I've had a friend look at it, and I've had the string teacher at my school look at it. My friend the string teacher is convinced that it is almost definitively a college piece. I just wanted to write a fugue. P.s. The ending might be a little. inappropriate. it was meant to be funny but now that i look at it after the fact, I think I might implore a different last few bars.
  23. I'd ike to share this little fugue in 5 voices. FUGA 5.mp3 FUGA 5.pdf
  24. My fugues. Youtube chanell - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq67eZ59XLApUiUS1mKwBhA I'm waiting for your opinion.
