This Little Fugue by Zipoli is a smaller/shorter form and of less complexity than what we are accostomed to in other fugues.  This Fugue is in F major and is in 12/8 time. The theme/subject begins in the right hand and is then repeated many times on different pitches and by both hands.  Students need to show a clear statement of those repeated themes. One can choose to play the themes either in legato or non-legato, as long as one shows the beautiful lines and phrases.
