BachScholar Editions Vol. 80: J.S. BACH: Sinfonia from Cantata 29: Etude on One Staff with Two Hands (5 pages) presents a unique and accessible transcription of Bach’s exciting Sinfonia from Cantata 29, which Bach reworked from his previously composed Preludio from Partita No. 3 for Solo Violin. The present edition notates Bach’s original solo in the treble clef played with alternating hands: stems up = R.H. and stems down = L.H. Sharing the solo between the two hands results in a difficulty half that of romantic, virtuoso transcriptions that add chords and accompaniment material in the bass clef. This unique transcription offers pianists Grades 5 and up a fun and rewarding study which fosters evenness of touch and tone and explores innovative fingerings and hand crossings. This transcription of Bach’s exciting Sinfonia from Cantata 29 has something for everyone — piano students, teachers, and concert artists alike!
