It seems highly likely that these 'Inventions' were composed by Bach with his pupils in mind, intending them as exercises or studies which would help them to understand and perform his more impressive works, at a later stage. They are by nature therefore, rather technical pieces and to make them into a pleasuable musical experience is not an easy task. Miss Hewitt overcomes this problem with ease however and gives us a feast of musicality not often heard in this type of Bach. This, combined with her usual flawless performance technique, makes for most agreeable listening and I would commend this recording to anyone. Students coming to Bach for the first time particularly, could learn a lot about how to make his music live. The two more major works are,of course, played with equal fire, charm and dexterity.
