Invention Reinvention

Music of Sally Greenaway

What would Bach's 2-part Invention in F Major sound like if it were written in the ragtime piano era of the early 20th Century? Be transported to a bygone time, to the dawn of a major new age of human activity and entrepreneurship.

This is a movement from the dramatic music work The 7 Great Inventions of the Modern Industrial Age for chamber ensemble, actor, set design and lighting design. The full large-scale work was commissioned by the Myer Foundation in conjunction with Melbourne Recital Centre in 2016.
