"I write a lot of verse in English and Greek (and occasionally in Italian), German I cannot handle, though plenty of my heroes are Germanic in character (or at least Gothic) and most of it is about romance. I don’t have time to set all that stuff to…"

"I think this is quite a good composition.

If you wanted you could develop the theme more, but I don't see any very important reason why you should. I think the middle part is solid, and the ending is interesting.

You lost my attention towards the…"

"couldn’t agree more, Teoh, about the b4 Bach modal contrapuntal tradition (and use of authentic and plagal modes where the 4th degree in many cases is considered as dominating the whole process).
My only regret regarding that ancient tradition is…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lurian's discussion Fugue in Bb major on an italian drinking song.
"Actually, real tradition (i.e., pre-Bach) has fugue answers coming in all sorts of intervals. I took Kristofer's advice to take a look at Pachelbel's fugues in Magnificat, and found that, indeed, he has expositions with all kinds of key/mode…"

"Tradition says to answer in the dominant (or tonic) and establish both gravitational centres, but we can cheat a bit, can't we? :-)

"So, I tried do make a real amswer as Teoh suggested to preserve completely the theme, thank you  for your solution it works fine but to me musically it's not satisfying because it deforms the countersbuject"

Mike Hewer replied to Lurian's discussion Fugue in Bb major on an italian drinking song.
"Hi Lurian,
FWIW I like your answer as it retains one of the 2 charming minor 3rd intervals (dominant to mediant). Nothing wrong with HS's solution so it is all down to what you might consider important when retaining the subjects shape - what are…"

"Thanks, Lurian!
I transcribed the first few bars of your fugue and played around with the answer a little bit. Here's what I came up with:
The notes in blue indicate where I changed the answer and the corresponding counterpoint.  IMO this version…"

"Hi Lurian, I think you accidentally uploaded the .mp3 file again instead of the score. :-)
As for the "embarrassing" 6/4 chord, it can't have been that embarrassing since I didn't even notice it. :-D"

Lurian replied to Lurian's discussion Fugue in Bb major on an italian drinking song.
"Here you go with the score, thank you all for your feedback
Teoh, it is true that the theme sounds very distorted with a tonal answer, I felt a bit forced to do so because the theme starts on the dominant and that's how textbooks handle it, I will…"
