I've just finished the Bach Two-Part Invention #1 and am slowly learning #13. I'd like to supplement this with a piece that requires leaps larger than an octave in BOTH HANDS that would be doable at my level, preferably something that tests hand independence like the Two-Part Inventions.

Does any such repertoire exist?

Hi clarinetist,

I think you should play Liszt's La Campanella it's really a cool piece!

Just joking.... I wish I would be able to play that piece. Those are insane leaps right there.

I don't know of any piece around the level of Bach inventions that has gigantic leaps.... Maybe someone else can give you a better answer.

Haha. I laughed. I actually thought of that piece at first... but I agree with you, it's way above my current level.

Hi!

You might want to try out Gymnopedie no.1 by Eric Satie :)

It has some pretty big leaps.

I've already learned that piece, but thank you.
