The Bach Inventions in the blue Bärenreiter edition was the first “real” piece of sheet music I worked from as a child. I mean “work” in the truest sense of the word, because among other things I had to create my own fingerings – a deeply enriching and formative first musical-pianistic experience for which I am grateful to this day.
