Tom Jensen replied to H. S. Teoh's discussion Fugue on a theme by Erwin van Delft

H. S. Teoh replied to Tom Jensen's discussion Fugue in B minor Tranquillo
"Here's an idea for you: during one of your cadences, sneak a subject entry into the mix.  I forget the exact terminology, I think it's called a "hidden entry" or something like that.  Of course, this only works with certain kinds of subjects -- the…"

"Hey Tom, took a couple of listens to your new fugue today.  I liked the overall structure of a slow and solemn opening leading to a lively 2nd section.  I did find some parts in the first section a bit unconvincing, like the awkward rhythm at the…"

"Has anyone noticed the absence of someone in particular here lately?
It is Mr. Fugue himself  :>} , I'll bet he is hard at work penning the ultimate 'fractal fugue'.
or should I say the 'penultimate fugue'. The gauntlet was dropped and the challenge…"

Tom Jensen replied to Tom Jensen's discussion Fugue in B minor Tranquillo
"You did say you didn't listen to any post with 'fugue' in the title - which implies an aversion. You are a composer, and my guess is if you enjoyed writing fugues you would at least listen to fugues other people have written, so I don't think its…"

Well the title of your piece is Fugue in B minor Tranquillo, so by definition you are demonstrating your ability to write a fugue.[...]
