Fifteen two-part inventions for the piano by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

9 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ten sinfonias selected follow the imitative counterpoint that Bach considered approprate preparation for the study of fugue. The remaining five, though technically in three voices, follow other Baroque forms such as the trio sonata, gigue and siciliana. Even today these pieces are primary to the study of keyboard music. However, their pleasures can be enoyed by several instrumentalists. An open score facilitates this approach, while encouraging the study of individual voices.-Laurette Goldberg
