Surprise y'alls. It's been a crazy year and I apologize for not uploading anything all this time. But I hope this video makes up for my absence. :)
I sometimes revisit old works to see how they can be improved upon, many years later. The Nokia Fugue is a perfect example of one of my earlier works, composed when I was just starting to get into contrapuntal writing. Many years later, after having being exposed to the great chamber music of Bach, I decided to take another shot at it—this time as a woodwind quartet, which allows for much greater clarity and counterpoint.
This is my original woodwind quartet arrangement of the Nokia Fugue (http://goo.gl/OBTWTf
) that I had composed back in 2008. It is quite a bit longer with a more defined musical structure, first beginning with a exposition, then followed by two stretti, then a second exposition on the inverted subject, followed by stretti on the inverted subject, then a re-exposition that begins with an extra voice, and finally the coda that was heard in the original.
