JS Bach Invention No. 1

Here's the piano version.


I still need to smooth out some parts in the middle and also fix the ending on one part I can't seem to nail. That big jump on the left hand from Mi to Re at the end - I have a tendency to crash into the Re and it needs to be way more chill. It'll get there.


Thought this was a pretty good point to post this as it's just entered the point where I can begin making it recital ready. It's stunning the amount of small minutia that goes into even such a short piece like this. For example, if I played this at the recital in front of the judges — I'd probably pass, but barely. That's how strict they judge our performances, and also a testament to how well trained their ears are.


But I will say - I love me some Bach Inventions! Thanks for watching.
