Bach: Sinfonia No. 15, BWV 801 (synthesized)

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750): Sinfonia No. 15 from Inventions and Sinfonias, BWV 801

This piece comes from Bach’s collection of Inventions and Sinfonias (also known as Two- and Three-Part Inventions). Bach composed the set as an exercise for his keyboard students, stating that students “are shown a clear way not only to learn to play cleanly in two parts, but also, after further progress, to handle three obligate parts correctly and well; and along with this not only to obtain good inventions (ideas) but to develop the same well; above all, however, to achieve a cantabile style in playing and at the same time acquire a strong foretaste of composition.” This sinfonia is the last of the set, and is one of the more challenging. It requires great dexterity in the fingers to play its fast, flowing runs cleanly and articulately.

This synthesized rendition, along with the scrolling visualization, were generated by our MATLAB synthesizer. The timbre is a combination of three previously created sounds, as well as a new voice created specifically for this piece.
