"Your edition of the Bach Inventions is an excellent, practical edition with a splendid foreword. Students should consider it a 'must' and I look forward to introducing it to mine."-Igor Kipnis.
This Alfred edition was carefully and methodically prepared by Willard A. Palmer. It is based on several sources, including Bach's Autograph of 1723, the manuscripts of Bach's son Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, and the manuscripts of Bach's student Heinrich Gerber. The extensive and thorough explanation of trills, mordents and appoggiaturas are helpful and precise, making this issue of Bach's Two-Part Inventions the most practical and attractive one available
