As in his days, Johann Sebastian Bach's Inventions form an integral part of the piano teaching literature even today. The three selected examples with facsimile give an insight into Bach's teaching workshop and his aim to teach his pupils 'to cultivate a cantabile style of playing and to gain from the beginning a strong foretaste of composition'. The edited musical text of the new edition is based on the revision of all inventions and symphonies of the composer presented by Ulrich Leisinger in 2007.

The edition is supplemented with a facsimile of the autograph. As well as being a bibliophile´s delight, the edition also offer the opportunity to study the composer´s own manuscript in all its details. The most subtle nuances, which can only be represented in musical handwriting and never in print, can thus provide a logical extension of the typographical limitations of engraving, and convey additional stimuli for consideration of the interpretation of the work.
