Fugue in D Minor for four voices (subject by Gedalge)

I wrote this while preparing for the Eighth Year Exam of Classical Composition at the Conservatory of Milan, in 1999 (or perhaps 2000?). The subject (the first four bars) is one of Gedalge’s classical treatise’s exercises (it’s the number 4). I remember it was really a pleasure to see a fugue getting together nicely, and this is one of the best I wrote. (My countersubject, in particular, functions very well…)

I am jealously preserving all my handwritten scores, but recently I also found a transcription I made in Finale (I believe that was the 1998 version; a real pain to use) and here is its MIDI rendition: enjoy! 🙂
