Bach wrote 15 three-part Inventions for the musical education of his son, Wilhelm Friedmann. Here are three of them in a Suite for two Bb Clarinets and Bass Clarinet. There is also an optional 3rd Clarinet part in lieu of Bass Clarinet although the latter is preferred in order to capture the 'line' of the lower part. I have added dynamics and articulation which can be modified according to taste. Bach rarely wrote either, leaving such things to the performers. These pieces could be used individualy as interludes during a religious service or as a suite in a concert.

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.
