Bach wrote these piano studies, Inventions and Sinfonias, between 1720 and 1723 to help instruct his son in the playing and handling of two- and three-part pieces. They are mostly short studies and have been given neither tempi nor dynamic marks. There are as many interpretations as there are pianists, as one can conclude by those recorded. Glenn Gould has even rearranged the order, mixing the two and three parts alternately. Jerome Robbins selected about a dozen of all the pieces for this work. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was born into a family of musicians successful for over two centuries. Although later in his career he became most noted for his choral and other church-related compositions, he also left a large body of instrumental music for solo instruments and ensembles. While his popular reputation was eclipsed by the fame of his sons, he was revered by musicians and composers. Finally in the 19th century Mendelssohn brought his music to public attention and he became recognized as one of the greatest of all composers. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=92411 New York City Ballet true DD/MM/YYYY
