    Smile Fuga Romana per un giorno migliore

    hello

    This fugue follows the toccata romana vpx-132
    Writting this fugue has been a challenge because the subject starts on degrees V, VI,VII,VIII, and that is a problem when the bass voice has to play it. The problem has been fixed using sustained chords (sus 4)

    FUGA (hi quality MP3)


    And now there is also a video

    I won't pretend I understand the technicalities of writing fugues, but you seem to have solved the problems admirably. The toccata and fugue together make a very rich and satisfying musical experience. I would love to hear it played live on one of your great French instruments! Perhaps one day...

    Very fitting for the toccata which I enjoyed.. I really like the theme of the fugue which I can hear and feel rising and falling as it developes . It seems to flow well and I think one of your better compositions actually. Keep up the good work my friend. Bill

    What a beautiful fuga ... and so deserving of the music to feature photos of in and around The Vatican and Rome itself.

    Your works just keep getting better, Jean-Paul.

    Hello. I do not know any live recording of this fugue on a French organ, but may be you will like this version performed on the virtual organ St-Martin, Dudelange (Luxembourg).
