Ex. 7

Variation 4 is a fugue.  Fugal development is common in variation writing but a fugue is often reserved for a later, often the last variation, yet another shift from the expected.  The subject of the fugue has a suggestion of familiarity and with good reason, it is variation 1, now in the minor.
