"A proper guide, by which lovers of the harpsichord, and especially those who crave instruction, are shown a clear way of learning not only to play cleanly in two voices but also, after further progress, to deal correctly with three obbligato voices, and also to create and properly develop good musical ideas; but, above all else, to acquire a true cantabile style of playing, and, with it, to get a good foretaste of the art of composition."

Thus reads J.S. Bach's own description, provided in a paragraph-long preface to the volume that contains the final 1723 versions of the pieces, of his Two- and Three-Part Inventions for keyboard. His purpose in writing them could not be made more plain -- and, indeed, it was not as instructional material in some general sense that he first conceived the pieces, but rather as exercises specifically designed for his 12-year-old son Wilhelm Friedemann (the first versions of the pieces are to be found in the 1722 Clavier-Büchlein for Wilhelm Friedemann). There are 30 pieces altogether, 15 Inventions in two voices and 15 Sinfonias in three.

The 15 Two-Part Inventions are written in the 15 keys that were at the time considered to be standard for keyboard use (remember that the Well-Tempered Clavier, which explores all 24 keys, was a novelty made possible only by the advent of more sophisticated tuning systems). The original order of the pieces was rather different than is the order in which one today finds them -- it was Bach himself, however, and not modern editors, who rearranged the pieces. The final key scheme is as follows: 1. C major, 2. C minor, 3. D major, 4. D minor, 5. E flat major, 6. E major, 7. E minor, 8. F major, 9. F minor, 10. G major, 11. G minor, 12. A major, 13. A minor, 14. B flat major, 15. B minor.

Although originally composed for Harpsichord, I created this arrangement of the Invention No. 11 in G Minor (BWV 782) for Viola Duet.
