All this Invention's basic materials are set out in the first couple of measures; as the bottom part trots up and down a stair-step figure, the top part plays a tiny motif consisting of a trill and an unornamented note, repeated once and creating a skipping rhythm. The top then follows this with a more extended trill before taking up the stair-step material, whereupon the bottom has a go at what the top has accomplished so far. Soon that third trill is shed, and the full melody, which passes back and forth between the parts, is assembled by joining the stair-step pattern to the initial pair of skipping trills. And so it continues, the two lines imitating one another but not with absolute strictness. The material of greatest melodic interest finally settles into the top part, with the bottom part ultimately relegated to accompaniment mode for the final measures.

Although originally composed for Harpsichord, I created this arrangement for Viola Duet.
