English Suites BWV 806-811
Johann Sebastian Bach
Editor: Rudolf Steglich
Fingering: Hans-Martin Theopold
Urtext Edition, paperbound
Although people might like to think that the “English Suites” were composed after the “French Suites” (HN 71), “the temperamental and in part virtuoso flow of these Suites is more characteristic of the musical language of the young Bach” (from our preface). The kaleidoscopic variety of the six “English” Suites is breathtaking. One lifetime is not enough to exhaustively comprehend and penetrate them. G. Henle Verlag provides the sustainable musical basis for this, in different formats: the complete paperbound volume (HN 100), clothbound (HN 101), divided into Nos. 1–3 (HN 102) and Nos. 4–6 (HN 103) and last but not least in a very good value study edition with the identical musical text (HN 9100).
