Bach, Johann Sebastian
The Well-Tempered Clavier Part II BWV 870-893
編集者: Yo Tomita
指使い: András Schiff
The world-famous pianist András Schiff, a most familiar name to Bach fans on account of his complete recordings of Bach’s piano works, has provided fingerings for both parts of the Well-Tempered Clavier. He discusses aspects of performance practice in a detailed preface. The basis for the musical text was Henle’s revised edition of Part I published in 1997 and Yo Tomita’s brand new revision of Part II (spring 2007). The eminent Bach scholar Tomita discusses the complicated source situation of Part II in an extensive preface. A detailed commentary rounds off the edition. Both parts of the Well-Tempered Clavier are also available as Henle Urtext editions without fingerings and as study editions.
This edition by a leading Bach scholar is a vast improvement of the previous Henle “Urtext” edition …
[Harpsichord & Fortepiano, 2008]
… the clarity and authority of this edition is exemplary. The introductory notes have been expanded and a commentary at the back explains editorial decisions. Study scores of these Preludes and Fugues are also available – same layout, same accompanying notes, also clear to read from, but in A5 size and no fingering! Excellent.
[Piano Professional, 2008]
It has the high quality of appearance that one expects from the publisher, and much of the layout is the same as Henle’s previous editions. But in detail it represents the sources more exactly, with an editorial policy that aims at Bach’s latest adjustments rather than following a particular MS.
[Early Music Review, 2007]
Een uitgever die zulke meesterwerken inzichtelijk weet te maken en die er bovendien speelplezier voor weet aan te wakkeren, verdient de allerhoogste lof.
