Tune of the Day: Invention in E major by J.S. Bach

arranged for two flutes

Johann Sebastian Bach's Two-Part Inventions are a collection of fifteen short keyboard compositions, originally written as musical exercises for his students.

Today we present the sixth of the inventions in an arrangement for two flutes by Wilhelm Schönicke, originally published in 1902. Because of its syncopated rhythms, this duet demands great concentration.
