Ignacio Cervantes (1847-1905) was a Cuban pianist and composer and his music is an early example of nationalism.

It has a haunting quality and is suited to being played by a number of different instrument combinations.

Prelude in D minor (originally Cm) BWV 999 for solo keyboard

This is the prelude in C minor BWV 999 transcribed to the key of D minor. Right and left hand fingering is specified. The chordal element of this piece relates well to the modern musical ear. The movement was popularised by Segovia's solo guitar playing although the origins of the movement are as a lute piece. This movement has to be rhythmically secure - it is tempting to play the movement too quickly or too methodically so choosing an appropriate tempo is quite a performance challenge..

Invention No.4 in D minor for solo keyboard

This solo keyboard version of the Two Part Inventions has right and left hand fingering specified. A flowing and reflective movement which should be played at a tempo which gives the music an uplifting feel rather a plodding one. A tempo of 72 dotted eighth note beats (dotted quaver) to the minute is suggested. The ornaments for this movement do present something of a challenge and I would suggest leaving them out whilst the piece is being learnt. Modern Bach playing benefits from a fairly dry acoustic with little use of the piano sustaining pedal.

Invention No.13 in A minor for solo keyboard

The Two Part Inventions are excellent training pieces but do require a secure technique if they are to be performed competently. This is a challenging piece because it can be performed convincingly at different tempi. I would suggest that the sixteenth notes (semiquavers) are played evenly without any exaggeration or alteration to the rhythmic intention. This version has right and left hand fingering specified.
