Bach, J.S.: (Complete) Sinfonias BWV 787-801
The Inventions and Sinfonias, BWV 772–801, also known as the Two- and Three-Part Inventions, are a collection of thirty short keyboard compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750): 15 inventions, which are two-part contrapuntal pieces, and 15 sinfonias, which are three-part contrapuntal pieces. They were originally written as musical exercises for his students.
We thought it interesting – if a little controversial – to include different takes of the Inventions and Sinfonias that pianist Maurizio Zaccaria played during the same recording session. Each take is unique, with its own shades and nuances. The works selected during this session, but also chosen based on the number of plays and shares (playlists) [this release is, in fact, only destinated to the streaming], will constitute the album’s “official” version, soon to be released. A video version of the same recording session featured here will follow.
The recording was done using Bruel & Kjaer microphones, two pairs, and Prism Sound preamps and converters in the Saletta Acustica 'Eric James', Italy.
Recorded @ Saletta acustica 'Eric James', Pove del Grappa,
