Well, okay, I really like harpsichords, for starters...
...and it is certainly an instrument well suited to your musical sense...

There is certainly a Bach-like quality to this, and it all "fits"...

A great pleasure to listen to...

This has terrific movement
A treat to hear the harpsichord in a professional way. Plenty of solid musical direction. Sounds like you have really studied Bach, he is such a delight and love the influence of him here though not that you copied just shows your playing is at a high level. Sounds like you enjoy this style!

Thanks for sharing

Bravo.
This is the first original fugue composition I've found on this site.
Way to go!

(I haven't made a successful one yet, but I hint at it occasionally.)

Congratulations...
...on a really beautiful fugue, probably the most difficult of all classical musical forms. It's usually pretty easy to make it through the first 2 or 3 passes, but you manage to sustain the entries all through the piece. One has to listen carefully, but it's all there. Amazing that this form is still of life after some nearly 300 years. You do it justice in a big way.
Peace.

Fugue for You
Nicely done. The harmonies are very good and the production is well done.

Did you try this at a faster tempo. It seemed to me that a quicker tempo would have enhanced the piece.

Well done!

bach would be proud
Very well-conceived fugue, where the harpsichord is perfectly at home.

I would *LOVE* to hear you break new ground in a fugue using this instrument! What's here is excellent, very true to Bach, but it's been done so often before. How about trying your considerable compositional skills on something completely new and different?

I encourage you to do so, because it would be awesome!

Good work.

this piece is.........
just wonderful. Beautiful piece with its melodic tapestry richly wooven into a fugue that would make Bach proud. Great work Ginsli! This is your best (and hope not the last) piece!

Besides the piece...
...(which is very, very well written), you also have a really fine touch on the harpsichord...

This is very fine...

Very nifty
Ok, great counterpoint, and very JSBian lines.

Eh, how come you're starting in Amin (or is it Emin?) and ending in Cmin?

Question about the theme. In spite of the whole piece having a clear Bach-like character, you do a number of un-Bachlike thing. The theme seems to open (unless I really misinterpret the rhythm) with a pickup (very unusual) jumping to the tonic. But then the ending of the theme has that D#, and it ends on an E, so was E the key? If so, that jump to A is rather strange.

Also, you quickly establish some downward chromatic lines, as is common in fugues in minor keys. But very quickly there appear ascending lines making me wonder "did I just miss an inverted theme entrance?" I don't think I did. Maybe delay such devices until you've established your material?

Anyway, my admiration for the polyphonic writing and your skill in pulling of such a convincing pastiche.
