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. We are now presenting 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.

    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.
