In the exposition, a short motif is introduced by one voice in the tonic key; this is known as the theme. The subject is repeated in the second voice in the tonic key while the initial voice either plays a countersubject or plays in free counterpoint; the development comprises the bulk of the piece. Here the composer develops the subject by writing variations either harmonically.
This involves the alternation of episodes with statements of the theme, similar to the development of a fugue. In minor- and major-mode inventions, the theme is restated in the relative major and the dominant, respectively.
New key areas are reached through episodes, which move sequentially through the circle of fifths; the final episode ends on a half cadence in the original key, is exaggerated to make the subject sound extra special when it returns. If an invention does have any recapitulation at all, it tends to be short—sometimes only two or four measures; the composer repeats the theme in the upper voice and the piece ends.
The repetition of the theme contains little variation on the original theme; the lower line plays the countersubject, if there is no countersubject, plays in free counterpoint. The invention is a work of Johann Sebastian Bach. Inventions originated from contrapuntal improvisations in Italy from the form of the composer Francesco Antonio Bonporti.
Bach modified the form to what is considered to be a formal invention. Bach wrote 15 inventions as exercises for Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. Bach wrote a set of 15 three-part inventions, called sinfonias. Leipzig Leipzig is the most populous city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany. With a population of , inhabitants as of , it is Germany's tenth most populous city. Leipzig has been a trade city since at least the time of the Holy Roman Empire ; the city sits at the intersection of the Via Regia and the Via Imperii , two important medieval trade routes.

Events in Leipzig in played a significant role in precipitating the fall of communism in Central and Eastern Europe through demonstrations starting from St. Nicholas Church. Since the reunification of Germany , Leipzig has undergone significant change with the restoration of some historical buildings, the demolition of others, the development of a modern transport infrastructure.
Leipzig today is an economic centre, the most livable city in Germany , according to the GfK marketing research institution and has the second-best future prospects of all cities in Germany, according to HWWI and Berenberg Bank.

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra , established in , is one of the oldest symphony orchestras in the world. Johann Sebastian Bach is one among many major composers who lived in Leipzig; the name Leipzig is derived from the Slavic word Lipsk , which means "settlement where the linden trees stand". An older spelling of the name in English is Leipsic ; the Latin name Lipsia was used.
In the Nazi government renamed the city Reichsmessestadt Leipzig.
Since Leipzig has been informally dubbed " Hero City ", in recognition of the role that the Monday demonstrations there played in the fall of the East German regime — the name alludes to the honorary title awarded in the former Soviet Union to certain cities that played a key role in the victory of the Allies during the Second World War; the common usage of this nickname for Leipzig up until the present is reflected, for example, in the name of a popular blog for local arts and culture, Heldenstadt.
More the city has sometimes been nicknamed the "Boomtown of eastern Germany", "Hypezig" or "The better Berlin" for being celebrated by the media as a hip urban centre for the vital lifestyle and creative scene with many startups. Leipzig was first documented in in the chronicles of Bishop Thietmar of Merseburg as urbs Libzi and endowed with city and market privileges in by Otto the Rich. Leipzig Trade Fair , started in the Middle Ages , has become an event of international importance and is the oldest surviving trade fair in the world.

Like many musical scales, it is made up of seven notes: the eighth duplicates the first at double its frequency so that it is called a higher octave of the same note; the simplest major scale to write is C major, the only major scale not requiring sharps or flats: The major scale had a central importance in Western music in the common practice period and in popular music.
In Carnatic music, it is known as Dheerasankarabharanam. In Hindustani classical music, it is known as Bilaval. A major scale is a diatonic scale; the sequence of intervals between the notes of a major scale is: whole, half, whole, halfwhere "whole" stands for a whole tone, "half" stands for a semitone. A major scale may be seen as two identical tetrachords separated by a whole tone; each tetrachord consists of two whole tones followed by a semitone.
The major scale is maximally even; the scale degrees are: 1st: Tonic 2nd: Supertonic 3rd: Mediant 4th: Subdominant 5th: Dominant 6th: Submediant 7th: Leading tone8th: Tonic The triads built on each scale degree follow a distinct pattern. The roman numeral analysis is shown in parentheses. Moreover, the key signature of the piece of music will reflect the accidentals in the corresponding major scale. In this case, the key signature will have three flats; the figure below shows all 12 relative major and minor keys, with major keys on the outside and minor keys on the inside arranged around the circle of fifths.
Seven sharps or flats make major keys that may be more conveniently spelled with five flats or sharps. The term "major scale" is used in the names of some other scales whose first and fifth degrees form a major triad; the harmonic major scale has a minor sixth. It differs from the harmonic minor scale only by raising the third degree.
There are two scales that go by the name melodic major scale: The first is the fifth mode of the jazz minor scale, which can be thought of as the major scale with a lowered sixth and seventh degree or the natural minor scale with a raised third; the second is the combined scale that goes as Ionian ascending and as the previous melodic major descending. It differs from melodic minor scale only by raising the third degree to a major third; the double harmonic major scale has a minor sixth. It is the fifth mode of the Hungarian minor scale.
