Edited by Eduard Herrmann.

Johann Sebastian Bach, one of the greatest German musicians, was born in 1685, and died in 1750. His works are monuments of his art, unsurpassed masterworks in counterpoint, polyphony and harmony, which not only merit general admiration, but also urge to ardent study; for it may well be said that Bach's compositions mark an era in the development of modern music.

Worthing GB
I cannot play them myself but wanted to know what the great violinists were playing. I saw at Brighton Festival Isabelle Faust playing these beautiful works and she used an unusual bow. In Bach's time the bow stick was roundedly curved with increase flexibility in the horsehair so that it was more possible to play on two or more strings at once - necessary in polyphonic music. Faust's bow was wider in depth from stick to horsehair and was held further up the stick than modern bows are and with less wrist movement, mostly arm movement to resonate the strings. Her performance was gentle, competent and beautiful, bearing none of the struggles of her forebears trying to play these pieces with the modern straight bow. The ornaments in the music are wonderful and Faust performed these gently and beautifully. Faust had also consulted the original Bach manuscripts to perform these works, and this showed too.
Not a good enough violinist to pay these daunting works myself!

Customer Rating Great music (obviously) but I don't like the type setting. I previously owned a Peters edition which I thought was much better & in the future would prefer to stick with that publisher.
