It came as it had to come: there is no way around G-sharp minor if you have to compose a piece of music on each of the twelve notes ....
Be glad that I didn't choose A flat minor, that would have added an additional musical accidental.

We now have a short prelude, which is quite fast to play at 82 BPM. The interesting thing about this short piece is that when I improvise for hours, I play the same runs with the harmonic shifts in the upper voices. So here I've just written down what I play so often .....

The main focus is on the fugue. Here I have set myself the task of playing it in 5 voices. Not at all easy to compose and probably impossible to play. But that's nothing new with my compositions .....
I was inspired by various introductory choruses from JSB's cantatas. Let's think of "Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt" or "Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu Dir" or "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott". Here, in a fugato, all the voices join in one after the other with the melody in the bass as the respective climax.
I need three attempts. The exposition of the theme, the inversion and the theme played backwards, which then also leads into a coda with a powerful organ point that ends the piece after well over 7 minutes of playing time.
