Going through all the piles of music paper in my study recently, brought some nice surprises. Not only all my harmony and counterpoint exercises are stil here, I found some finished compositions I had completely forgotten about. Though I am rather critical of my own compositions, two of them are nice enough to typeset, play and publish.

The first is a fugue in g minor. I can't remember whether the theme was one of my counterpoint assignments, or that I created it myself. So perhaps you know the theme from another fugue. If so, let me know who composed that one. So the first four bars are perhaps not original, the rest is.

The standard building blocks of a fugue are all there: exposition, divertimenti, re-exposition. The only thing missing is a stretto near the end of the fugue. I probably thought the fugue already long enough as it is. It has three sections where the third section is largely a repeat of the first section and the middle section is build on a different, chromatically descending, theme.

It was nice to play it again after al these years. I hope you like it too.
