Unlike the other fughettas I have written for this set of chorale preludes, the cantus firmus never appears in its entirety. The subject is, however, derived from the familiar opening of the chorale…Continue

Here is a chorale prelude, in the manner of a fughetta, on the hymn "Kyrie, Gott Vater in Ewigkeit". It is meant to be one piece in a set of chorale preludes based on the Lutheran hymnody. While it…Continue

"That's odd...I'm in the middle of class, so I can't check it, but at bar 30 there should be a new exposition with the subject presented in both original and inverted forms. As for the da capo of the initial exposition, I've…"

"Hi Philip..  I like your theme, and it's harmonic possibilities..  (To my mind you are definitely using fugal technique).  I think it evolves quite well.. and the sequences contrast well with the theme.. I am not certain though,…"

"It is a simple piece to listen to, but I like it, it is very nice. Not sure if it is a real fugue, but nonetheless it is a nice piece of work."

Fughetta supra "Jesu, meine Freude" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"]

Unlike the other fughettas I have written for this set of chorale preludes, the cantus firmus never appears in its entirety. The subject is, however, derived from the familiar opening of the chorale tune. And its A-A'-B-A/B? structure may seem "inappropriate" for a fughetta, but I'm sure I've come across looser structures in "free" contrapuntal works.EDIT: I've uploaded a revised version in place of the earlier version.See More

"The speed, note-lengths, should be longer, or tempo slightly lower, in my view. The abundance of marcatos seems superfluous?The exposition (though the subject was hard to like at first) is enjoyable, the middle-part to the ending coherent and also…"

Fughetta supra "Kyrie, Gott Vater in Ewigkeit" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"] -- Criticism appreciated!

Here is a chorale prelude, in the manner of a fughetta, on the hymn "Kyrie, Gott Vater in Ewigkeit". It is meant to be one piece in a set of chorale preludes based on the Lutheran hymnody. While it is short, I feel it could perhaps be more tightly structured and, likewise, I'll be the first to admit that, in my attempts to craft a contrapuntal piece with a cautious internal unity, I wrote a short fugue that lacks "variety" enough to maintain interest and move the listener even over its brief…See More

Antonio Freixas replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Toccata in stile fuga con alcune licenze [for pedal piano/pedalier]
"The loud parts are a bit-heavy handed. I realize you are probably aiming for an intense contrast, and contrast is what keeps a piece interesting. But too much of anything gets tiring. The piece, as a whole, has contrast, but the individual musical…"

A fugue-like toccata for pedal piano/pedalier, composed in September/October of 2015, during the little "free time" I had between law school classes.See More

William Hu replied to Philip Daniel's discussion A series of chorale preludes for organ (ongoing project)
"Quick impressions of the first three: Es ist ein rose esprungen: This one has a really nice melancholy tone to it, and is quite harmonically well defined. The climax in bar 14 is a great payoff for this one. Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme: This one…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I am currently a second year law student in Philadelphia. I enjoy composing in my free time, and have a particular love of counterpoint, particularly fugue. Most of my compositions are for solo instrument or small ensemble, but I have plans to expand to choral and orchestral writing. Within my small circle I actually have a number of "devoted" fans. I hope that my music speaks for itself.
