A distinguished edition
The Berenreiter Edition of the 3 Sonatas and 3 Partitas BWV 1001-1006 is a model of clarity, suitable font, and stimulus for creative thought re fingering and bow position. This is a distinguished edition in many ways and will long serve the violinist.

This version has no preprinted notes for the violin which allow you to change more than one time "fingers number" without making you sheet unreadable.

What Bach actually wrote
I was looking for an Urtext edition of these master works. They are what Bach actually wrote (or at least he saw written) and they provide an insight on the phrasing intentions instead of the bowing as it is seen nowadays. Knowing what the phrasing is, I decide the best bowing. The page distribution could have been planned better, so that you do not have to change pages in the midlle of a piece.

Bach Sonatas and Partitas
My love of these pieces continues to grow as my experience as a violinist grows. As a professional violinist I like this edition because I appreciate the absence of editing and it is reasonably priced. It is printed on very nice cream coloured paper so is easy on your eyes and has a nice sturdy cover.

The Best of the Best
These works for the solo violin have remained at the peak of the violin literature for more than 250 years and rightly so. The Urtext edition of these masterpieces is the best edition on the market. The works have been taken straight from the autograph score and reprinted here in a clear, easy to read format. One real advantage of the Urtext edition is that it has no editorial marks of any kind, save what Bach wrote in the original. This enables the violinist to create his or her own bowings and fingerings to suit their own musicality. This edition is a must have for every serious violinist.
