A collection of beautifully elegant Two-Part Inventions for the Piano student and teacher.

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.

        Amazing contents. Well presented. 15 fantastic pieces written for Bach's ten year old son to encourage his keyboard playing. Great fun to practice - exercises the fingers due to the complexity of the rhythms and dynamics. A great buy.
