15 Inventions (BWV 772-786) by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Arranged for alto flute and bass flute by Carla Rees
Includes score only
Bach's two-part Inventions are charming miniatures which were originally written as educational material for Bach's piano students. In this arrangement for alto and bass flute, the articulations are intended merely as suggestions and the performers are free to make their own interpretive choices. The contrapuntal nature of the music is such that the parts share equal importance, but players must take care with the balance to ensure that held notes are not allowed to dominate over the moving lines. Alternative notes are given to accomodate a low B footjoint on the alto and bass flute where available.
