Two-part inventions

Arranged for nyckelharpa and accompaniment

by Marco Ambrosini, Caterina Other & Eva-Maria Rusche

Johann Sebastian Bach was certainly ostensibly a keyboard instrumentalist, but he is also said to have been an excellent string player. Many of his works for keyboard instruments are wonderfully suited to be performed by string instruments as well.

The nyckelharpa, which in all likelihood was no longer known in the German-speaking world at the time, unites precisely these two musical souls of Bach: the bow, with its special articulation possibilities, guides the listener through the melodic and The keyboard with its keys and tangents enables precise intonation, an empty string sound for every note played, and ultimately a perhaps unique transparency in the complex harmonic structure of his works – not to forget the resonating strings of the instrument, which can serve to better sense the harmonic relationships through the longer sounding of the notes played.

Two Part Inventions

Arranged for Nyckelharpa & Accompaniment

by Marco Ambrosini, Caterina Other & Eva-Maria Rusche

Johann Sebastian Bach was primarily a keyboard instrumentalist, but he is said to have been an excellent string player, too. Many of his works for keyboard instruments lend themselves wonderfully for performances on stringed instruments.

The nyckelharpa, which at that time, was very probably no longer known in German-speaking areas, perfectly melds Bach’s two musical souls. With its very special articulation possibilities, the bow leads through the melodic and rhythmic twists and turns of the individual parts, the keyboard with its keys and tangents enables precise intonation, and there is an open string sound for each note – ultimately this provides possibly a unique transparency of the complex harmonic structure of his works. We should also not forget the sympathetic strings of the instrument, which due to the fact that the played notes sound longer, thus enable a better sensing of the harmonic connectedness.

The book is written in English and German language.
