Invention 12, BWV 783 -- Urtext

Two-Part Invention No. 12 in A Major - Inventio 12



Please note that this score contains suggestions for playing the ornaments in accordance with Baroque performance practice :
  • Mordents (as in measure 1, right hand) are played very quickly, with a incisive character
  • Trills (as suggested in measure 21) are played ON the beat and begin on the upper auxiliary note
  • Turns (as suggested in measure 21) begin on the note above the principal note, and are played quite rapidly
  • Ascending trill with termination (as in measure 1) again is played ON the beat and consists of three parts : a prefix from below, the trill, and the suffix (termination)
Please note that the smaller-size ornaments in this score are suggestions from the editor.

Duration : 01:20
