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.

    Great collection and the most complete one there is of Bach's keyboard music! Although quite smaller in size than a performance sheet as well as containing lots of pages per book (about 750) - makes it a little uncomfortable to sight read or learn the music on the piano; nevertheless...

    , it's an enormous and priceless collection that is well worth the price. A mandatory book collection to any serious scholarly piano student or a teacher. Being a doctorate student myself I find this product to be invaluable for Bach's music scholars and music lovers alike!

    New Bach Edition is an excellent choice. Too many pages per volume, is not easy to manipulate then (but have a good bind, and complete Bach`s piano works in performance edition is too much expensive) The best: the most complete edition. Extensive appendices.
