BACH, Johann Sebastian, 1685-1750

[Oratorio, BVW 11] Himmelfahrtsoratorium [“Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen”]. Oratorio Festo Ascensionis Christi BWV 11. Faksimile nach dem Partiturautograph der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Mit Einführungen von Martin Petzold und Peter Wollny. Festgabe anlässlich des Jubiläums 100 Jahre Bachhaus Eisenach Museum der Neuen Bachgesellschaft e.V.
Stuttgart, 2007. 22 x 32 cm, viii, 34 pp. 4-color facsimile of the elegant autograph score, reproduced in the original loose bi-folio format. The Ascension Day Oratorio's festive orchestration calls for solo SATB, SATB chorus, 3 trumpets, timpani, flutes, oboes, violins, viola, & bc. Although it was first performed on May 19, 1735 for Ascension Day, according to indications in the autograph it is actually a copy of the score of the composer’s inauguration piece of 1732 (or name-day cantata of 1733) with new underlayed text. The work bears striking similarities with the Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248), completed only six months earlier. Introduction in Ger-Eng-Fr. Issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bachhaus Eisenach Museum of the Neue Bachgesellschaft. Portfolio. $106 (more info... ) [item no.8831]

Introduction in Ger. Portfolio in linen. $68 (more info... ) [item no.1748]


[Cantata 29] Wir danken Dir, Gott, wir danken dir (BWV 29). Ratswahlkantate. Faksimile nach dem Partiturautograph der Deutschen Staatsbibliothek Berlin, mit einem Kommentar von Hans-Joachim Schulze. [Mus. ms. aut. Bach P. 166].

Kassel/Leipzig, 2010. 4°, 24, 50, 16, 16 pp. Color facsimile of the autograph score, original performing materials and original libretto. Cantata 33 belongs among the unique annual cycle of chorale cantatas composed by Bach in 1724-25, the second year of his Leipzig tenure. The cantata counts among the very few works where all the relevant source materials for the first performance have been preserved—yet dispersed throughout the world: the composing score is kept at the Scheide Library in Princeton, the vocal-instrumental performing parts at the Bach-Archiv in Leipzig, and the original libretto at the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg. The facsimile offers invaluable insight into the composer’s workshop and the changing conditions for performances under his direction. Commentary in Eng-Ger. Limited edition.

[Brandenburg Concerti, BWV 1046-1051] Brandenburgische Konzerte. Faksimile des Autographen. Faksimileausgabe nach dem Autograph Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußische Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung, Am.B.78.
Leipzig, 4/ 1996. Oblong, 33 x 26 cm, 170 pp. Halftone monochrome of the dedication autograph score—dated 24 March 1721—for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Bach's elegantly penned title "Concerts avec plusieurs instruments" (concertos with several instruments) is a somewhat modest description of the concertos to follow, in that many different combinations of instruments and sonorities are exploited, perhaps deliberately to get the Margrave's attention and approval, not unlike the way Mozart used his Gran Partita to introduce himself to the Viennese public. Sadly the autograph score was left unused in the Margrave's library until his death in 1734, the reason being (it is believed) that he lacked the musicians to perform the concertos. One of the great gems of Western music, this facsimile is a perfect gift for any wind or string player, harpsichordist, conductor or music lover. Handsome binding in brown linen with lettering in gold. $285 (more info... ) [item no.7619]

One of the most beautiful and meticulous of all of Bach's manuscripts, “Sei solo à violino senza basso accompagnato” are a delight for the scholar and perfomer alike. Bach clearly has taken performance from the autograph into consideration—by using comparatively large note heads, detailed articulation and phrasing marks, "custodes" that sit nearly throughout the manuscript at the end of each staff and anticipate the pitch at the beginning of the following staff, and by deligently planning the page layout with only few page turns, which are accompanied with the instruction "volti subito" (turn immediately).

More recent research shows that the sonata is actually a collective effort, with Anna Magdalena copying the main music text, and Johann Sebastian Bach adding the movement headings, key signatures and (in an extremely careful way) figures to the basso continuo. The mss were produced on behalf of the Bach student Heinrich Abraham von Boineburg and eventually ended up in the possession of Manfred Gorke; they were opened to the public for the first time in 1935.

Oblong, 28 x 21 cm, lxxii, 111 pp. Color facsimile of the Richault edition (one of the four first editions of the work), with autograph emendations by Fredéric Chopin. In his triple activity as composer, performer, and teacher, Chopin constantly turned to Bach as a supreme point of reference. The Well-Tempered Clavier is said to be the only score he took with him to Majorca in the winter of 1838-39, at the time he was completing his 24 Preludes op.28—in other words, at the heart of his career as a composer. Until now the important role played by the Well-Temperedocument published here for the first time confirms it with living proof of a different kind, a live record, so to speak, of his teaching. This precious score, held in a private collection, emanates directly from Pauline Chazaren, a pupil of Chopin and teacher of Cosima Liszt. The score was probably purchased in Lyons around 1843 prior to Pauline's Parisian sojourn and was d Clavier in Chopin's teaching has been known on the basis of literary sources. The brought or sent to Paris, where it was used in the lessons with Chopin. The score shows no trace of interventions that could be ascribed to Pauline or anyone else. Leafing through the pages of this copy of the Well-Tempered Clavier I, one cannot fail to be struck by the neatness with which the signs and words indicating tempo, metronome marks, phrasing, articulation, dynamics, left-hand octaves, and so on, have been notated. All of Czerny's indications (probably taken from the 1843 Veuve Launer edition), save fingerings, have been copied out by Chopin.

Bach’s Bible: The Calov Bible, Die Heilige Bible 1681-92. Facsimile of the Original Preserved in Concordia Seminary Library, St. Louis.
Franeker, 2014. 19.5 x 33 cm, 3 vols, 4355 pp + commentary. Full-color deluxe facsimile. The 3-volume Bible commentary compiled by 17th-century theologian Abraham Calov and once in the library of Johann Sebastian Bach has been in the Seminary Library collection since it was given to the Seminary by the Reichle family of Frankenmuth, MI, in the 1930s. The volumes are the only known, i.e., identified, books from the library of Lutheran composer J. S. Bach. Calov is both editor and author of the commentary, using as he does both Martin Luther’s translation of the Bible and primarily Luther’s comments on the text, adding his own commentary when no material is available in Luther’s works. The work was printed in 1681-82. Some 25 marginal annotations of Bach, along with underlining and other marginal markings, are evidence of the composer’s use of the volumes. Careful analysis of the handwriting, as well as technical analysis of the ink done in the 1980s, established the authenticity of Bach’s ownership. Commentary in Eng/Ger/Jap/Dut by Albert Clement.
