Quick Overview

Inspired by the two- and three-part inventions of Bach, Baksa's 36 Canonic Inventions were composed in the early 1980s but are now available complete in two volumes. Each two voice invention is followed by a three voice invention in the same key so that the result is somewhat like the Master of Master's Preludes and Fugues. Many of these pieces were premiered by Harpsichordist Elaine Comparone but they are equally suitable for performance on piano or pianoforte. --American composer Lee Hoiby once asked me where I learned to write counterpoint. I told him that I learned by writing my Canonic Inventions.-- (Robert Baksa)
