Quick Overview

In the year 1723, J.S. Bach rearranged and reworked his Two-Part Inventions to present them in an authoritative version, with the intention of bringing about ‘pure' keyboard playing. The Two-Part Inventions remain, to this day, among the most popular keyboard works by the composer. Vienna Urtext's new edition of this essential teaching work for piano strictly follows Bach's manuscript and contains facsimile examples from the composer's autograph. Both the earlier and later versions of Invention One are included in this definitive edition.
