Bach's five most playable two and three part inventions. Originally intended to be played by Bach's children on the Clavier, these pieces have since been adopted the world over as an indespensible component of the piano teaching repertoire.
I am a beginner and I am playing Bach! I heard about these pieces on the CD "Mr Bach Comes to Call". I think the fictional Johann there said "any idiot could play them" so I knew they were for me. I have practiced number 1 a zillion times and still need to work on a constant rhythm, but I still love playing it, which I cannot say for other pieces that I have mangled. Anonymous
