A large number of works have survived bearing the name of Johann Sebastian Bach, the authenticity of which has been called into question on various occasions. This edition now combines all those pieces where Bach's authorship has been either verified by the musicologists at theNew Bach Editionor where there is a degree of certainty about this. The edition gathers together a range of different types of composition: as well as numerous preludes and fugues, there are toccatas, dance and concert works. Two adaptations after the violin solo sonatas BWV 1003 and 1005 are worth special mention. These two works demonstrate particularly clearly what applies to all the other works in this volume: whether Bach's authorship is doubtful or not, there is no question that this is a collection of fascinating music.

This performing edition corresponds to the complete edition volume of theNew Bach EditionBA 5296 (Series V, Vol. 12), published in 2006.

  • May 08, 2020 Bach is Best

    I don’t have much to say about the composition quality of these pieces as some of them seem to me to be from other composers. And that’s the fun part of this book. You get to guess as to whether or not Bach wrote them. Some, in my...

    opinion, seem like other composers, while some appear to be by Bach and these pieces are “hidden gems”. I recommend this book for serious performers/scholars of Bach’s music.

    Lots of music in this volume, most no longer attributed to J.S.Bach, by one of the world's top music publishers.
