Bach's Clavier music is composed by the (1717-1723) of KETEN. The France
suite, The British suite, The Well Tempered Clavier I , The invention of
two voice and three voice was also one of them.
Bach composed the concerto and chamber music for a court, while six years
living in KETEN. @However, as for this time, children's education occupied
the great portion of activity of Bach. The son was particularly blessed
with the talent also in Bach's pupil.@ Then, although they grow up to
be a composer, that is because there was education which was excellent
in the great father. Most Clavier music of Bach had started for the purpose
of education. Bach was telling their thing proudly to "Genius by nature".
Wilhelm Friedemann Bach is blessed with the especially rich talent, and
Bach is beginning to write "The collection of piano short pieces for
Wilhelm Friedemann@Bach " which consists of 62 music as teaching
materials to a son in 1720 when he became 10 years old.
The form of the beginning of an "invention" is found out in the
collection of music saved in the library of The Yale University. The music
of two voice was "preamble", three voice was "fantasia",
entitled there. 1723 came, Bach revised them further, arrangement was changed
and the title also changed.@It was called the two voice was "Inventio"
three voice was "Sinfonia" .This music in own hand of a total
of 30 music of Bach was crossed to the hand of the second son's Emaniel
after his death, and became Germany, Berlin, and possession of a ward-facilities
library in the 19th century. This is the starting point of the work loved
in the name of the "invention." today
Since the first draft of an invention" is found out by the collection of music for the eldest son, it is clear that this collection of music was written for the educational purpose. Then, what was it that Bach wanted to teach in this collection of music? The answer exists in the preface of the last draft. It is there.
If it flips two voice parts finely and Clavier's lover and a division
study candidate not only divide them first, but make progress further It
processes three voice parts of obbligato correctly and well, and, simultaneously
with it, it not only obtains outstanding (invention), but develops them
skillfully, and how to have carried out clearly for especially attaching
the rendition of cantabile to the body and acquiring the preliminary knowledge
of composition with it. It is written.
Bach flipped the polyphony of two voice and three voice skillfully, divided it here, and is requiring that each melody should moreover be flipped so that the voice part here may be sung to cantabile, a player in the heart. And since it was also going to show the example of an example for how is outstanding theme thought of and music is made, it is the bottom. Although the "invention" of two voice and three voice serves as teaching materials which must be for a piano student, merely considering this to be the etude of a finger has missed the essence of this work. When the teaching materials which were excellent for Bach were not the outstanding works of art, they did not become. While this collection of music is guidance of rendition, it is also the highest work of art. Although there is just no external brightness in an "invention", those who put and hear the heart are spoken to by beauty without an equal. Although each music is short, all that have completed music are in the few vibrant tune. Probably, you may call it the nebula by which one music was completed at a time. Then, this Bach's work of art Please enjoy yourself by Gabriel Mihai Dragomir@performance.
