  • September 24, 2014 For piano

    The fingering favors long legato lines, which is more native to the modern piano than the harpsichord. If you are a harpsichordist with a 2-manual instrument available, consider the Wiener Urtext edited by Christoph Wolf and fingered by harpsichordist Huguette Dreyfus. It costs a little less but the print...

    and layout are just as good.

  • August 14, 2010 Decent edition

    Nice spacing, excellent quality for your money. Not the biggest fan of Henle, but this edition is worth it.

    Superb edition for keyboard players. Highly recommended for anyone pursuing serious study in this wonderful piece. Works well for both harpsichord and piano.

  • April 15, 2009 Henle Editions Set Pace for Advanced Piano Music

    There is no contest for best editions of piano music. This edition of Bach's Goldberg Variations is THE edition for serious musicians who want to challenge themselves. My daughter is still taking lessons in her 50s, so there is no doubt in my mind that she is serious (though...

    certainly an amateur) and for her birthday nothing but the best is good enough.
