6 Two-Part Inventions by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Arranged for piccolo (or flute) and alto flute by Carla Rees
Includes score only
Bach's two-part Inventions are charming miniatures which were orginally written as educational material for Bach's piano students. In this arrangement for piccolo and alto 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 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.
