  • December 10, 2011 Helped me play better

    The clean score, without later editorial additions, made it easier for me to understand Bach's intent.The physical structure of the book is a pleasure. The pages open and lie flat, unlike cheaper editions, and the solid paper is easy to write notes on with a pencil. I consider...

    these editions a "treat" and save up to buy them for new work and to replace my older, less satisfactory editions.

    This is an excellent edition. Comprehensive and informative. The editor's notes at the beginning help provide valuable background information to the works and their composition. Useful for both teachersof intermediate/advanced students and performers alike.

  • July 18, 2007 A must for Bach admirers

    Henle is definitely the authority on Bach. Bach's Suites are often overlooked on the switch from Inventions/Sinfonias to Preludes/Fugues, but the dances are very much worth playing. The suites have been edited for a playing style more appropriate for the harpsichord, so discretion is required when deciding...

    when to use the marked apoggiaturas and embellishments. If you're looking for a very plain, accurate copy of Bach's French Suites, this is the one to get.
