An amazingly inexpensive study edition presenting all of Bach's clavier music in four large, handy volumes containing the definitive Urtext from the New Bach Edition. This unique edition was prepared by internationally recognized scholars on the basis of all known sources and the latest research findings. Besides familiar versions of many pieces, the reader will also discover widely divergent and heavily ornamented variants from Bach's immediate circle. Many of these variants appear here for the first time in print. Generally the contrasting versions faithfully reflect the state of the sources: hybrid versions of the sort often found elsewhere have been strictly avoided. An indispensable and reliable edition for all admirers of Bach's clavier music.
