Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Complete Works of J.S. Bach -- 155 CD Set!

Now even more up-to-date: the COMPLETE BACH EDITION. The music by the great J.S. Bach is timeless. Views on the interpretation of his works, however, keep changing and evolving. So the complete Bach Edition is evolving with it.

No less than 9 CD’s of this set have been replaced by new recordings by prominent Bach performers such as the Sixteen, La Stravaganza Köln with Andrew Manze, cellist Jaap ter Linden and Musica Amphion. They play the Weihnachts Oratorium, Orchestral suites, cello solo suites, Brandenburg Concertos and the Concertos for 2 and 3 harpsichords.

This Edition was first issued in 23 installments to celebrate the 250th
Read more anniversary of the death of J.S. Bach. It contains every piece of his known to exist at the time.

Including new recordings of all the 200 sacred cantatas on period instruments and sung by a boys’ choir exclusively made for Brilliant Classics. The entire Bach Edition has been very well-received internationally and has become a standard in itself.

Now even better quality at a real bargain price! 155 CD’s in wallets and one CD-Rom with all texts and liner notes in a single space saving box.

REVIEW FROM MUSICWEB OF THE ORIGINAL SET:

"Brilliant Classics embarked on a daring project in the year 2000, the year of the 250th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach's death: this budget label decided to release a complete set of Bach's works...some 65% of the 155 CDs in this set were newly recorded (the remainder was licensed from other labels), including Bach's almost 200 sacred cantatas...I highly recommend this set. I have recordings of all of Bach's works and yet I was delighted and surprised as I listened to the many pearls that I discovered here...if you like Bach's music, you owe it to yourself to get this - at its super-bargain price, even those recordings you don't like will not cause too much disappointment, but the quality of the excellent ones is such that you will certainly be delighted...If only to have the 60 CDs of sacred cantatas, and to discover what is an incredible collection of moving and memorable music, this set is worth having. Treat yourself to 160 CDs of Bach, then, take a few weeks off to enjoy this music."

"Just a decade or so after Philips released its complete Mozart Edition to general acclaim, this new one appears at super-budget price, and it's just as good. . . . It also comes with an introductory CD containing notes, sung texts for the sacred and miscellaneous vocal works, and all of the opera librettos. . . . Quite a bargain." -- David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com
