Early advanced students who have already mastered, or are capable of mastering the easier Two-Part Inventions by Johann Sebastian Bach will enjoy the challenges found in James L. King III’s Baroque Invention in F Major. Expertly edited in Baroque Urtext fashion, fingerings are included, but articulations and most dynamics are left up the performer. Satisfying to play and enjoyable for audiences, Baroque Invention is an exceptional recital piece for students, and a great “encore” piece for concert artists who are looking for new material.
