    BAERENREITER has consistently produced the most authentic and at the same time visually pleasing editions of BACH's keyboard works for a long time now; this one is no exception. Only downside to consider is that, in the spirit of being as "ur"-text as possible, they do not show...

    any fingering advice. If you prefer guidance with fingering, the editions from HENLE are the next best.
