Dances of J. S. Bach
Pieces To Play Before The Two-Part Inventions
One of the finest introductions to the keyboard music of J.S. Bach is through the various dance forms he used throughout his life.
Since these dances are rhythmic, use very few contrapuntal elements, and contain appealing melodies, they make fine recital material for the intermediate level pianist.
Most of the dances in this collection are technically less involved than the Two-Part Inventions.
Therefore, these dances provide excellent preparation for those wonderful pieces.
Before studying these dances, the student should have played a number of the basic pieces from the Anna Magdalena Notebook.
This is an Alfred Masterwork edition.
