Besides familiar versions of many pieces, the reader will also discover widely divergent and heavily ornamented variants from Bach's immediate circle. Many of these variants appear here for the first time in print. Generally the contrasting versions faithfully reflect the state of the sources: hybrid versions of the sort often found elsewhere have been strictly avoided.
An indispensable and reliable edition for all admirers of Bach's clavier music.
