Bach 2 Part Invention No. 2 in C minor for 2 pianos (additional piano part by Simon Peberdy)
By J S Bach, arr. Simon Peberdy
For two pianos
My objective was to be able make this easier version of this famous prelude possible for lots of pianists! The original key of this piece is C Sharp Minor- I have arranged it in C Minor which makes it all more user friendly! I have placed it at advanced intermediate- firstly, really big stretches and overlapping of the hands have now been avoided so it is more pianistic. Secondly, the key of C minor is far easier to negotiate some ledger line reading. Thirdly, the original goes into 4 staves towards the end- this has been avoided. It was my intention that the piece still retains all the grandeur of the original, but most of the chordal work is simply doubled up from one hand to the other as you will see from the score. The attached youtube has the full score for you to judge. 5 pages long- around 4 mins 10 in length.
