Edited by Bruno Mugellini Die vorliegende Neuausgabe enthalt samtliche Chorale aus Schemellis Gesangbuch in der originalen Reihenfolge. Gegenuber der bisherigen Edition Breitkopf Nr. 730 die uberein Jahrhundert lang ein zuverlassiges Spielmaterial darstellte wurden Format und Stichbild erheblich vergrossert und durch die Erganzung derjeweils ersten Choralstrophe im Notentext dem Benutzer die Handhabung der ,,geistlichen Lieder und Arien zusatzlich erleichtert. Der zweistimmige bezifferte Satz ist unverandert beibehalten und gibt Raum zu eigenen satztechnischen Losungen.

This new edition contains all the Chorales from Schemelli's song book in their original Order. Compared with the former Edition Breitkopf No. 730 which was a standard Performance edition for over one hundred years this new edition has been printed in a larger format and type. This as well as the addition of the first stanza of each Chorale in the musical text makes the Spiritual Songs and Arias still easier to use. The two-part pieces with figured bass have been maintained in the original form which allows the Performer to work out his own realization.

  • July 26, 2012 Outstanding edition,

    There are several editions of JS Bach's Well Tempered Clavier, but this one is head and shoulders above the rest and well worth the price. I also have the Henkle Urtext, Peter's and Czerny's, but this one is my favorite. Bruno Mugellini (who happened to be Busoni...

    's teacher) was obsessed with authenticity and provides helpful footnotes throughout. The themes in the fugues are clearly marked. Optional dynamics, pedalling and accents are provided and I find them in good taste. If I were forced to play only one book in for the rest of my life, this would be the one.
