The renowned Bach-Gesellschaft, founded in 1850 to collect, edit, and publish all the known works of J. S. Bach, devoted fifty years to its monumental task. It succeeded so well in tracking down Bach's heritage, establishing authenticity, and transcribing accurate texts that it still remains the primary source for Bach's music., Unfortunately, it has always been a fantastically expensive publication, accessible only in the largest libraries.
This volume reprints in full, directly from the Bach-Gesellschaft volumes, important keyboard music. It contains the full texts of the Six English Suites, the Six French Suites, Six Partitas from the Clavierübung, the Goldberg Variations, and the Two- and Three-Part Inventions and Sinfonias,
The music has been reproduced in large, clear type, directly from the original editions, for maximum clarity. Designed as a playing edition, it will be a necessary book to every performer on the harpsichord or piano, every music student and musicologist, as well as to serious music listeners.
