fugue in E major

This is a Fugue in E Minor for Classical Guitar written in 2013.

Back in my days as a young student at the University of Montreal, I took some counterpoint classes with the students majoring in composition. During that time our professor got us to study how counterpoint was used in the works of Bach and Mozart. I also learned how to write florid counterpoint over a cantus firmus. However the real challenge that I wanted to attempt was to write a fugue for Classical Guitar.

As most people know, the fugues that we studied in school were for piano. So I set out to write this fugue as I love the format of the fugue. I believe it strikes a balance between contrapuntal and thematic development.

Listen to my performance of this Fugue on Youtube.
