Bach 15 Inventions, BWV 772-786

J.S. Bach's fifteen inventions, BWV 772-786 are two-part contrapuntal compositions, originally written as exercises for musical education. Bach wrote that by studying these pieces keyboardists would learn to play cleanly in two and three parts, achieve a cantabile style and acquire a strong foretaste of composition.
