J.S. Bach: Complete New Organ Works - Vol. 8 (Book/CD-ROM)

Books and CD-Roms / DVD-Roms | Organ

Publisher: Breitkopf & Härtel
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Volume 8 presents the important work group called the “Leipziger Choräle.” Next to the late versions compiled and entered by Bach himself in the manuscript “P 271”, all of the early versions with their sometimes widely divergent readings have also been edited here. The examination and evaluation of all relevant copies uncovered many a surprising new reading. Responsible for the new edition is the renowned organist and musicologist Jean-Claude Zehnder. An extensive introduction and highly commendable commentary round off this volume, too. They also can be downloaded here.

Next to a reliable musical text, the highest importance was placed once again on performance-practical aspects, the results of which can be seen in the greater spaciousness for the notation and comfortable page turns. The enclosed CD-ROM contains more versions presented synoptically and for printing, a facsimile of an early copy of BWV 664, and the English translation of the commentary.

      The page turn is easier. The earlier edition is also shown for comparison.
      If the hymn tunes appear, then it is excellent.
