    Difficulty Level:
  • 2007-01-17 00:00:00.0 dated scholarship but the price is right

    Paint out all the slurs, fingerings, staccato dots, dynamics, and speed designations and you'll have what Bach wrote. Bischoff's work represents the scholarship of his day & is not to be sniffed at. His notes about alternate notes in other editions/mss remind us that even hand-written mss...

    may be [student] copies & thus prone to scribal errors. Do some paintin' first. Then some playin'. These are fantastic little pieces (tho not all are by JSB). Start with the cm prelude (ends in GM). End with the highly imitative ones. (Kalmus is traditionally the poor college students' choice for editions, & the house has a colorful past of staying just ahead of the copyright attorneys, which added to the Kalmus mystique bcs many of their printing plates were from "questionable sources." But the price is right, and if you know how to correct them, you're in business!
