    Difficulty Level:
  • January 04, 2022 Nice piece but overpriced for what it is

    First off, about the piece: It is fun and rewarding music to play, and a lot easier than the Bach fugues. I'd peg it around mid-level solo Bach difficulty, around Partita 1. I am nowhere near the level to competently attempt any of the Bach fugues, but after...

    a week I've made a pretty competent attempt of the Schnittke fugue. I'd recommend picking up and learning this piece. However, this edition feels overpriced. Absolutely no bowing or fingering suggestions, and no preface or biography or anything about the composer. For $14 I'd expect more than just 4 unedited pages of music. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only edition out there.
