My sisters and I all learned pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach hascounterpoint
in his songs which means you can hear two or more melodies combined together in a
harmonious (pleasing sound) way, but you can still hear the individual
melodies. To get more information on Bach please visit my previous post.
My younger sisters Hannah and Sarah play a Minute in G Major. Aminuet is a French dance for two people. This name refers to the short steps taken in the dance. In the Baroque time period, this dance was very graceful.
Next, my sister Sarah and I play Inventions. I played Invention No. 2 and Sarah plays Invention in D Minor No. 4. Inventions are short pieces written by Bachoriginally as musical exercises for his students. Bach wrote 15 inventions. My invention is fast and jumpy while Sarah's is faster and more melodic.
Below is a video of all three girls playing our Bach pieces.
