I introduced my tutorial by playing a snatch from Edna-Mae Burnam’s Dozen a Day, Book 1, no. 3 “Hopping.” It was the springboard for the wrist motion I use when playing Invention 8 in F Major.
I also enlist a hand rotation for a stream of 16ths in descending sequence, measures 4-6, and wherever else this configuration occurs in the course of the composition.
The Subject or main idea of Invention 8 is explored in a separate hands, slow practice approach, and I include the devices Bach employs in the Development section on p. 2. The counterpoint or dialog and overlap of voices are fleshed out in my final playing in tempo.
I had previously rendered the Invention at a slower speed, but preferred a brisker tempo.
