Here's another recent work of mine, a lighthearted contrast to the brooding fugue in E minor, this one is full of relentless energy and fun. Perhaps a little too relentless, I've been told. Pacing is one area I need to work on, in future works. :-D
In any case, this one is much more Bach-like than some of my other fugues, though it does have its decidedly non-Bach moments. Enjoy, and let me know what you think, good or bad.

Update 2023-11-13: I hired Ukrainian pianist Polina Chorna to perform this fugue, and was pleasantly surprised at how gentle it turned out:
Polina's interpretation: fugue14-polina.mp3
What do y'all think? It doesn't quite have the relentless energy of the computer playback, but it's much more delicate and musical, IMO.
Update 2023-11-14: David Lilly asked about how I would have performed this piece differently from Polina, so here's a score with some dynamics marked according to how I'd have played it. (It is to be understood as one of many possible interpretations, though, not as the Official One-and-Only True Interpretation!):

Also by request, here's the MIDI (the computer-generated version): fugue14.midi
Update 2023-11-19: David Lilly wanted to make a DAW mock-up that, in his words, "meets that vision" that I had when I wrote it. We went through a few rounds of revisions with my feedback, and arrived at the following mock-up:
DAW mock-up: fugue14-lilly.mp3
Curious how this compares with Polina's rendering and the original MIDI mockup. What do y'all think?
