Johann Sebastian Bach: Complete Organ Works in revised editions

Any complete scholarly critical edition of the works of Johann Sebastian Bach must incorporate new research findings in the interest of scholars and performers alike. Now all of Barenreiter's new performing editions of Bach's organ works are being revised to reflect the current state of scholarship and to convey maximum fidelity to the sources by being linked toBach digital.

The present volume is an updated edition of Series IV, Volume 6 of theNew Bach Edition(NBA), prepared by Dietrich Kilian in 1964. The discovery of new sources and a reassessment of existing handwritten copies have brought about changes to the contents of the volume, which now includes theFantasia in C minor(BWV 1121), theFantasia in G major(BWV 571), theFugue in G major(BWV 577) and the C major version of theToccata and Fugue in E major(BWV 566). On the other hand, thePrelude in G major(BWV 568) as well as the alternative versions of theFugue in C minor(BWV 574a) and thePrelude in A major(BWV 536a) have been discarded as presumably spurious.

Besides the new compilation and corrections of the musical text, the volume also contains a detailed Foreword by Peter Wollny with observations on each work and the extant sources. Page turns have been re-examined and improved.

In collaboration with the Bach Archive Leipzig and itsBachdigital database, links are provided to all the major sources. The website enables readers to access the relevant page in the source simply and conveniently via short URLs. The links stored there are examined for their validity on a regular basis.

BWV 551, 563-566 (version in E major), 569-571, 573-575, 577-579 and 1121 / Early versions and variants to I (Vol. 5) and II (Vol. 6): BWV 532a, 533a, 535a, 543a, 545a, 549a, 566 (version in C major) and 574b
