Invention 3 in D major

This week’s video brings the third installment in the Bach Inventions series featuring Invention 3 in D major, BWV 774. Each invention in the collection presents it’s own unique character and expression. For instance, this invention establishes a light and uplifting motif to start. But it soon changes to a mellower mood as the music shifts to a minor key. Typical of most Baroque music, tasteful ornamentation is scattered throughout. We finally return to the original key, finishing on a happy note.
