Invention 11, BWV 782 -- Urtext

Two-Part Invention No. 11 in G minor - Inventio 11



Please note that this score contains suggestions for playing the ornaments in accordance with Baroque performance practice :
  • Mordents (as in measure 2, left hand) are played very quickly, with a incisive character
  • Trills (as in measure 7) are played ON the beat and begin on the upper auxiliary note
  • Turns (as in measure 10, third beat) begin on the note above the principal note, and are played quite rapidly
  • Ascending trill with termination (measure 10, fourth beat) again is played ON the beat and consists of three parts : a prefix from below, the trill, and the suffix (termination)
