Creative fugueNew York composer Erik-Peter Mortensen keeps churning out creative works like the Fugue in B minor- Gilligan’s Island. He has cleverly arranged the popular 1960’s TV show theme into a work for guitar quartet. Would be great to hear this on guitars rather than their synthesizer facsimile!
Amazing theme for a fugueWow! What a great theme for a fugue. This amazingly well composed and conceived. It brims with joy and excitement like Bach visiting the 21st century and very excited to have seen a TV. What ever happened to our wigs on that desert island?, he might well ask.
Love this tuneThis is a lovely song with spinet piano. It is reminiscent of the medieval period when this style of performance was popular. It find of feels like Gilligan if he was a jester during courtesan times. Nice tune!
Classical playful melodyWelcome back to XIXth century! I think this could have been written for harpsichords some centuries ago. The melodies are nice and everything sounds in a perfect harmony. There are many variations in the melodies make the piece lasting just the good and necessary time. The tune is playfull even though the piece is dominated by minor chords. And the final change to major is just perfect to conclude on this spirit. Nice work!
Gilligans Island Guitar Fugue ReviewLove the rounds and the movement of the chords using the correct pivot points to have the minor interpetation of the motifs throughout the baroque style fugue . I am assuming this was done on a keyboard or a guitar synth which constricts the dynamic range and loses some of performance nuances.That being said it is a well done piece of music that has a sense of humor that's very appealing in a genre that is usually lacking in that. except for iconoclasts such as P.D.Q. Bach or Victor Borge . This is a real class act. Erik your a talented composer and I enjoyed it a lot - thanks for the opportunity to review it -Robert Meloccaro

Bach in the Gilligan IslandWhats a song! Thats a fugue.. Absolutely stuning se llama developed With classical forms and phrases. I must say you are a master and create beautiful music. I hope someday muy guitars can be part of your work
Beautiful and amazing performance!Wonderful composition in a baroque style like the fugues of J. S. Bach. Very clean the style and outstanding interpretation, with mastery and perfection. I enjoyed very much the sound and the severity of the composition and in addition the development of the fugue and the tension in the middle. Great resolution at end. Amazing! Congratulations!
