Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias are rightly considered as indispensable to every pianist. In his famous preface to the collection, Bach himself called it an Instruction; which teaches students and keyboard lovers to treat correctly; both two and three voices, to achieve a singing style in playing; and to acquire a strong foretaste of composition;. To this end, Bach created timelessly beautiful music which has lost nothing of its relevance to us nearly 300 years after its creation. Henle now presents a new edition of this classic collection, which draws upon all known sources and offers the best in instruction,; especially with respect to the transmitted embellishment variants. The new Bach – ideal for pianists of every age! Urtext Edition without fingering.

    I have five different editions of these inventions. One from my youth (very cheap), others well edited and one a facsimile. Editorial fingerings help you learn about fingering - both what is good and what isn't. I'm going back over these pieces (Sinfonias) because I want to voice them...

    as I believe they should be. A. Schiff refuses to pedal Bach because he can achieve beauty with properly voicing from his hands.
