Notes & Reviews:

Why a recording of Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias in altered order? The 1723 fair copy of both the Inventions and the Sinfonias has the keys ordered according to the ascending scale (C major / C minor; D major / D minor etc.). There is however no compelling reason to perform them that way; there are musically more meaningful and attractive sequences. Thomas Ragossnig presents one of them on this CD for the first time. He mixes the Inventions and Sinfonias in the same key and performs them in groups of two or four. The result is a musically exciting sequence of Inventions and Sinfonias that gives the listener the opportunity to linger longer in each key, as in a Baroque suite. Thomas Ragossnig zestfully interprets the various musical affections in these miniatures, so that these complex works function as a musically meaningful and stimulating cycle and not only as "contrapuntal references".
