A collection of beautifully elegant Two-Part Inventions for the Piano student and teacher. These inventions were composed by Bach as a teaching method for his son Wilhelm Friedemann, and exhibit the melodic energy and flawless formal construction that are the hallmarks of Bach at his best. The pieces offer an ideal opportunity to develop articulation, rhythm, fingering, phrasing, ornamentation and a singing melodic tone, and are essential repertoire for every serious Pianist. The Schirmer Performance Editions not only offer authoritative presentations of great music, they are also packed with interpretative suggestions, permanent fingering as well as an insightful historical and artistic commentary. An innovative tutorial series that provokes discussion as well as music.
