Based on the text of the Bach-Gesellschaft's 1866 score, this new edition aims to assist those 'desirous of learning' with suggestions and information to help them understand and perform the works of J.S. Bach. Performing suggestions are added in light grey, based on Baroque traditions, modern practices and the editor's experience of studying, performing, recording and teaching Bach's works. The suggestions are not a 'must' to follow, rather meant to assist in the comprehension and practical execution of The Well-Tempered Clavier and to encourage further exploration.
Editorial score markings in pale text include arrows pointing right to left, or left to right, indicating gradual slowing down or speeding up, commas to propose moments of delay; arrows pointing up and down indicate changes of dynamics, intensity and character of sound.
This edition is available in two volumes, or as 48 separate ‘Preludes and Fugues’, either as a printed score or a PDF file.
