Misc. Comments

Hail to J.S. Bach! (Almost.) These twelve two-part inventions do homage to the original, but also play on the word invention as they are quite quirky and full of endless variety. They are strictly in two parts as the Bach, but the counterpoint is not imitative. Instead, they traverse a variety of moods and styles from Scarlatti to the now – from melancholic to jolly romps.

– W. Jay Sydeman
