My teacher suddenly stopped giving me new Bach Inventions. Instead he switched to Scarlatti Sonatas.
I think these piece are quite different from Bach, the whole style is different, they are less like etudes or pratise piece, but are they as useful as the Inventions? What d'you think?
I doubt the function of Scarlatti Sonatas on a TECHNICAL way. I think they are nice to play but I think Bach's Inventions are far more useful. The way of writing is just different, with Bach I have more the feeling that is it good for me and Scarlatti gives the feeling of a concertpiece which is nice to play.
Or am I wrong?
