I send my apologies to those, ahead of time, who are annoyed by an essay that takes longer to describe the Invention than it does to perform it. The style, as usual with Bach, is the so-called imitatory or contrapuntal. This original motive is stated first in the right hand and then in the left, and the lines are developed in a great variety of methods and always with wonderful contrapuntal accompaniment. So, if you would like to have a copy of Invention 1 in hand, let's have a go at this: Measure 1: The motive C-D-E-F-D-E-C appears first in the upper part, and is imitated one octave lower in the left hand part.
Measure 2: The motive is transferred to the dominant G-A-B-C-A-B-G , again appearing first in the right hand and then one octave lower in the left hand.

Measures 3 and 4: The motive appears four times in succession in the right hand, stated in so-called contrary motion e. Also in the above measures, look at the left hand -- too many pianists miss this point: the eighth notes are grouped in fours, and these constitute the first four tones of the motive -- played at one-half speed!
I believe these left hand phrases should be brought out, rather than simply playing them staccato or simply detached with no apparent connection to anything else going on. Measures 5 and 6: These measures are devoted to forcing a change of key to G major. But we are not through! The measure ends with a very nice cadence into the key of G.
Measures 7 and 8: The process of Measures 1 and 2 is repeated, but this time, at the dominant in the key of G , but here the lower part begins. Measures 9 and The process is repeated, but this time the motives are in contrary motion.
