Dorff Invention after BWV 1013 for Two Flutes

Publisher-Theodore Presser
Level-For advanced flautists
Duration: 2’20”


To celebrate the 100th birthday of legendary flautist Julius Baker, the Dolce Suono Ensemble commissioned a series of short duos inspired by Bach, premiered by Jeffrey Khaner and Mimi Stillman. Daniel Dorff based his Invention After BWV 1013 on the opening phrase of Bach’s Partita in A Minor. Beginning as a Bach-like two-part invention, it bursts into a 7/8 bossa nova, still as an invention on the familiar Bach phrase.
