These trios are from the fifteen three-part inventions (also called sinfonias) of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). A complete set of parts is also available, including an alternate guitar part that replaces the bassoon. Bach wrote the three-part inventions (these are nos. 1-5, BWV 787-791) in 1723. Some pieces 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. NOTE: The playback online rushes the grace notes in the 5th invention.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
