Can anyone help with this fugue.

Shostakovich Fugue No.7 A major

Starts at 1:20


Its quite a neat performance as it is all arrpeggio based but although it looks easy it is very hard to play.

This is a talk about it which inspired me to play it.


I gave up with it a couple of years ago but inspired by cat fugue by scarlatti which I finished without such difficulties I think I have the skills now to finish the piece.


It is very much a fun piece so its not like one I am willing to spend ages to do practice on but I dont like to give up on things so it may be a longer term project piece.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions other pieces that may help ?

Thanks x

I'd say - get the fingerings sorted out bar by bar (write them in, and stick to them) - and practice lots of simple arpeggios (especially in A major) in each hand.

It's all arpeggios, not scales.

"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."

Thanks. I have fingering written in. Hope arpeggios practice will help.
