Here's another fugue I just finished today. To be fairly honest, the title says it all: I was once told by a fellow composer acquaintance, who was way more experienced than I even currently grasp, about the possibility of choosing subjects from other composers' fugues and having them repurposed as material for my own works. Finally, I have decided to undertake such endeavour with none other than Johann Sebastian Bach, thereby using the subject of his BWV863b (Fugue in G-sharp minor from Das Wohltemperierte Klavier 1). And so, here is the result. For the everlasting glory and might of the tallest among the greatest titans in Western Classical Music, I bequeath this humble fugue of mine to the immortal spirit of Lord Sebastian, our one true mentor in music, the divine Meister Bach. Enjoy! YouTube video:
