.Pag.4. 
« 84. 



These two and three part inventions seem really 
to have been expressly written by J. S . Bach as 
a preparation for his pupils for his greater works, 
particularly his "Welltempered Clavichord," and 
for this purpose they cannot be too highly recom- 
mended. Even at the present time a conscientious 
study of these inventions will prove to be of the 
greatest advantage, in developing the musical 
taste and finger technic of every talented student, 
desirous of rising above of mediocrity In none 
of the easier modern works is the left hand given 
such an independent treatment of the theme. 

The title, with which J. S. Bach has prefaced 
these inventions reads literally: 

"A true guide ivherein it is pointed out to 
the lovers of the Clavichord in a clear man- 
ner, not only how to play clearly in two parts, 
but also with further progression to handle 
correctly and ivell three obligato parts, also 
at the same time ?iot only to acquire good in- 
ventions,but also how to develop them well; and 
above all, to gam a cantabile style in playing 
and in this connection obtain a strong fore- 
taste of the composition ." 
The keys used in common are: C major, C min- 
or, D major, D minor, E\? ma jor,E major, EminonFma- 
jor,Fminor,Gmajor> G minor, A major, A minor, B\> 
major, B minor. 

The two part inventions were composed inCoe- 
then, while those in three parts were probably not 
finished until the beginning of the Leipzic period. 
One of the two original manuscripts of this work 
isfoundin the "Clavierbuchlein fur W. F. Bach" 
(Coethen, 1720); the other, with numerous alter- 
ations, was formerly among the possessions of Ph. 
E.Bach and passed later into the hands of L. 
Spohr. M. Hauptmann used the latter as a guide 
in the critical comparison of this edition. 



Inhalt. 

I.) 15 Zweistimmige Inventionen.. Pag. 4 



II.) 15 Dreistimmi&e 



Inventionen 84 



-;«>:■ 



Die zwei-und dreistimmigen Inventionen scheint 
J.S.Bach recht eigentlich als Vorbereitung auf sei- 
ne grosseren Werke-namentlich auf das „Wohltem- 
perirte Clavier"- fiir seine Schiller verfasst zu ha - 
ben,und als solche sind sie nicht genug zu empfeh- 
len. Auch gegenwartig nochwird fiir je den talent- 
vollen Zogling des Klavierspiels,-das fleissigeUe- 
ben dieser Inventionen, in Bezugauf musikalischen 
Gesehmack und Finger- Ausbildung von grossem 
Nut z en sein. Denn in keinem der neuen, leich- 
tern Musikstiicke ist der linken Hand eine so 
selbstandige Behandlung des Themas zugeteilt, 
als eben hierin. 

Der Titel, welchen J.S.Bach diesen Inventio- 
nen beilegte, heisst wortlich: 

„Aufrichtige Anleitung worn it denen Liebha- 
bern des Claviers eine deutliche Arth gezeigt 
wird, nicht allein mit zwo Stimmen reine 
spielen zu lernen,sondern auch bei weiteren 
Progressen mit dreien obligaten Partien rich- 
tig und wohl zu verfahren,anbei auch slu- 
gleich gute Tnventiones nicht allein zube- 
kommen,sondem auch selbige wohl durchzu- 
fuhren,am Alter meisten aber eine cantabile 
Arth im Spielen zu erlangen und darneben 
einen stark en Vorsch?nack von der Compo- 
sition zu iiberkommen ." — 
Ihre gemeinschaftlichen Tonarten sind: Cdur, 
Cmoll, Ddur, Dmoll,Esdur, Edur, Emoll,Fdur, F- 
moll, Gdur, Gmoll, Adur, Amoll, Bdur, Hmoll . 

Die zweistimmigen Inventionen sind inCoth- 
enkomponiert worden,die dreistimmigen dagegen 
mogen erst zu Anfang der Leipziger Periode voll- 
endet gewesen sein. Von zwei Originalhandschrif - 
ten dieses Werkes befindet sich die eine in dem 
Clavierbiichlein fiir W. F. Bach(C6then,1720) ; die 
andere, mehrfach verbesserte, war friiher im Be - 
sitze von Ph.E. Bach und ging spater indie Hande 
L.Spohr's iiber,wonach seiner Zeit M. Hauptmann fiir 
unsre Ausgabe den kritischenVergleichubernahm.

BOOKS BY 



E. ROBERT SCHMITZ 



7<& &afitune o£ Itt&fiOtatiott 

The Capture of Inspiration proves that science does not shackle art, but 
provides it with the power and the means to respond to the highest aesthe- 
tic ideals. In this book E. Robert Schmitz gives the musician an understand- 
ing of the physical forces that are the basic materials of his art. His study 
of the physiology applied to pianistic performance and his investigation 
and analysis of mental musical processes offer to the pianist greater re- 
sults from the expenditure of his energy; he acquires a sense of technical 
freedom which opens endless vistas of musical expression. This is a sig- 
nificant contribution toward a greater musical art. PRICE: *3.50 



SCHMITZ EDITION • &6*fU*t ZtucUt 

This fine edition was inspired by Chopin's letters and essays on piano technique. In accordance 
with Chopin's principles and practices, Mr. Schmitz offers a flexible system of fingering; basing 
his notations upon unvarying structural characteristics of keyboard and hand, he indicates the 
fundamental basis for the selection of individual fingerings. Each Etude is preceded by an 
explanatory text which encourages a true musical performance. PRICE: *2«50 





PRICE: M I.2."» 



SCHMITZ EDITION 

These comparatively easy pieces, which are among the world's greatest 
music, are attractive and constructive material for students. In this edition 
Mr. Schmitz phrases each separate musical segment and has added 
technical comments which meet the needs of both the average student 
and the one who is familiar with "The Capture of Inspiration". The 
comments are in a separate folio, to avoid unnecessary turning of pages 
and to permit simultaneous study of the musical and technical texts.
