Bach: Invention no 7 for saxophone quartet

Johann_Sebastian_BachWe continue our series of Bach Inventions with number 7. Of course it is a two-part invention, but we have arranged it for saxophone quartet SATB. It is interesting to look into the manuscripts and learn something about the evolution of Invention no 7. In an early version it was 21 bars long with three segments of equal length. But Bach altered the last segment and it was extended into 23 bars. Well, thank you, Johann Sebastian. Two more bars of sheer genius!
