Ecrire une fugue…

Par Marc Zisman |

Alors vous voulez écrire une fugue ? Glenn Gould pose la question et se permet de donner la réponse en musique avec cette composition qu’il signa en 1963, So You Want To Write A Fugue ?. Le pianiste présente lui-même son œuvre pour quatre voix. Bach n’a qu’à bien se tenir ?

So you want to write a fugue.

You got the urge to write a fugue.

You got the nerve to write a fugue.

So go ahead, so go ahead and write a fugue.

Go ahead and write a fugue that we can sing.

Pay no heed, Pay no mind.

Pay no heed to what we tell you,

Pay no mind to what we tell you.

Cast away all that you were told

And the theory that you read.

As we said come and write one,

Oh do come and write one,

Write a fugue that we can sing.

Now the only way to write one

Is to plunge right in and write one.

Just forget the rules and write one,

Just ignore the rules and try.

And the fun of it will get you.

And the joy of it will fetch you.

Its a pleasure that is bound to satisfy.

When you decide that John Sebastian must have been a very

personable guy.

Never be clever

for the sake of being clever,

for the sake of showing off.

For a canon in inversion is a dangerous diversion,

And a bit of augmentation is a serious temptation,

While a stretto diminution is an obvious allusion.

For to try to write a fugue that we can sing.

And when you finish writing it

I think you will find a great joy in it.

or so...

Nothing ventured, nothing gained they say

But still it is rather hard to start.

Well let us try right now.

Now we are going to write a fugue.

We are going to write a good one.

We are going to write a fugue ... right now.
