Hans Bischoff (1852--1889) was a German concert pianist and well-regarded music editor, who continues to be respected for his thorough research, attention to detail, and careful consideration of source materials. This newly engraved edition of the Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 is based on Bischoff's analysis of the first edition, a copy of the "Aria" contained in the Clavierbüchlein of Anna Magdalena Bach, and several manuscripts from the Royal Library in Berlin. Bischoff's footnotes and prefatory commentary have been preserved, as well as his interpretive suggestions for performance. Also included are explanations of the ornaments used throughout the work and helpful fingering. Measure numbers and BWV numbers have been included for easy reference.
