In his famous preface to the collection, Bach himself called it an “Instruction” which teaches students and Keyboard lovers to “treat correctly” both two and three voices, to “achieve a singing style in playing” and to “acquire a strong foretaste of composition”. To this end, Bach created timelessly beautiful music which has lost nothing of its relevance to us nearly 300 years after its creation.
This edition of the classic collection draws upon all known sources and offers the best in “instruction”, especially with respect to the transmitted embellishment variants. This volume is deal for pianists of every age.
