15 Duets from Bach’s Two-Part Inventions (Clarinet and Cello)


These duets are from the fifteen two-part inventions of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Bach wrote the two-part inventions (BWV 772-786) in 1723. Some inventions in this arrangement may have been transposed; original keys are indicated before each piece. I have included tempi and initial dynamics; these are only suggestions.

In order to maintain a “cleaner” appearance, I have included the original ornament symbols, rather than writing out the ornaments. A number of websites include descriptions of Baroque ornaments. Soli Deo gloria
