Published within the ‘Signature’ Series, a series of authoritative performing editions of standard keyboard works, prepared from original sources by leading scholars including informative introductions and performance notes
‘As a scholarly reference, this edition is probably unsurpassable ... a rightly-lauded triumph of scholarship, it should be on the shelf of every musician.’ Music Teacher ‘Whatever other publishers produce, it is likely that, in the UK, the best-selling edition of the 48 will be the one published by the Associated Board.’ Early Music News ‘... this will be the standard text in the UK and worldwide, alongside all the other marvellous Bach, Schubert and Brahms editions already in Signature volumes.’ Classical Piano ‘Whatever your chosen instrument, this is not only a fine editorial achievement, but also a compendium of both wisdom and pleasure virtually without equal.’ Harpsichord and Fortepiano ‘... beautifully engraved and edited with the needs of the performer in mind.’ Music Business ‘Well presented and informative, this represents a valuable addition to the piano (keyboard) library.’ Sheet Music Latest ‘The best English-language edition so far. Contains very useful material on manuscript sources, variants, and performance questions. A bonus is the inclusion of Donald Francis Tovey’s classic analyses of each prelude and fugue, along with the editor’s helpful caveats.’ Early Music America Winter 2000/1
