The Bach Music Complete Edition (... the Bach Musik Gesamtwerk) alone at a really favorable price ... and then even six high-quality add-ons included in this price? Publisher and author, that is my husband Peter and I, are sure: This is the best "Bach deal" of all time.
The Bach Music Complete Edition (Gesamtwerk) plus the Historic Bach Music Edition of Music Sheets (Gesamtausgabe). Is the offer "too good to be true"? No it's not. Please keep in mind, that my husband's Bach Project and my Publishing House have a common Bach Mission. We do need your support and that is why we offer unbelievable cool deals to generate some financial budget to go on with our research. For this reason, this common adventure is no project to make a living, it is just a way – like that also works in museums – to generate a fraction of the money which we spend to illustrate the many websites and website pages, which Peter creates in his Johann Sebastian Bach Project, and to be able to hunt for more "Bach treasures" to buy more illustrations for pages, which will come into being in the future. Already now to the shop? Here's the link. So, in the case we are able to excite you, thank you so much for your purchase.
With your purchase of the Bach Music Complete Edition you not only support our Johann Sebastian Bach Mission. But from 2021 also our "Classical Music for Children Mission".
The "unbelievable Bach Music Complete Edition Deal". To be frank: This cool offer – almost too good to be true offer – results from the fact that the price tag for this Bach item is alone (... that is already without free add-ons) one of the lowest options in the universe: The best way to convince yourself is to visit the shop. It is certainly one of the best deals around. To make it even more appealing, we've come up with something. Because you get six items added here, all of which are valuable but cost us nothing. Unfortunately, we can't lower the price of the Bach Music Complete Edition any further, because then the goal of our Mission would lose its sense. And we cannot lower the S&H because the music CD box is too heavy. What we can do, however, is to simply deliver more in our "too-good-to-be-true Bach offer": The Bach Music Complete Edition / Bach Music Gesamtwerk plus the historical "Old Bach Music Complete Edition" (... the Bach Gesamtausgabe) of sheet music plus precisely five more add-ons. Read more about all add-ons under the following caption. Then further below you will find additional information about the unique quality of this latest edition of a powerful music label.

Yes, we did: Here's my husband Peter taking pictures at the museum in Leipzig, in Saxony. 8,400 photos times two pages = 16,800 sheets of music. A great fun for his back, because turning the pages required a " flowing movement" under the camera, then leaning back so as not to be in the picture himself. Above is the laptop we used "on the spot" and immediately to check quality. On the left is a part of the volumes, the Red Edition.
Even a slightly different position for photographing helps a little. On the right is the Blue Edition above, part of a Green and a Brown further down. Published is an edition over a period of 50 years. In our time the "New Bach Complete Edition" has been finished, and they are already working on the next one. This will be ready printed only long after 2050.
The so-called "Old Bach Works Gesamtausgabe" (Old Bach Works Complete Edition)". Yes, you are right, it sounds like it is the same as the "Bach Works Gesamtwerk" (... a wordplay which is not translatable)". And if you add "Alt" (...old) ... that together is then the "Old" Bach Complete Edition. In German, it's just a definition of a term, in English it's a play on words, it's fun, and it's confusing. So what is what? In German, the word "Werk" stands for the music, for example on CDs, the term "Ausgabe", also a kind of "Werk", stands for the sheet music published between 1851 and 1899. So the complete edition and the complete works are two completely different pairs of boots. The above edition is called "Old" because another one – later – followed. And after that a third one.Of course, the add-on you get as a PDF download is not on paper. However, this is the collection that Peter, my husband, photographed over three super long days in Leipzig, in Saxony. So you actually get both: the Bach Music Complete Works / Complete Edition (... "Werk") and the Bach Music Complete Edition (... "Ausgabe"). More or less. Yes ... confusing indeed.
No, you don't get 50 such volumes as an add-on with the purchase of the Bach Music Complete Edition. However, you get the space-saving PDF files of the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe" (The Old Bach Complete Edition), that is the 16,800 music sheets of Bach music.
Every single page in the 50 volumes is exciting. The "Alte Bach Gesamtausgabe", the "Old Bach Complete Edition (... of music sheets), the first add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition ( ... music on 142 CDs).
It's not just for kids, it's for adults, and it's some five-hour Biography About Johann Sebastian Bach for Children. There are also 19 "time-outs" with Bach's music. The entire production is narrated by a professional speaker and the main purpose is not to learn all the details about Bach that are listed in the usual biographies about the Thomas Cantor.
Entertainment – besides "transporting" the most important facts – is the main goal of this cute read about the composer from Thuringia in Germany.
Little cherub Balthazar is a narration specialist and little cherub Veit, his BFF is expert in making music. This Johann Sebastian Bach Biography is a crossing between the fun which both friends have and information plus the music about the Thomas Cantor.
The audiobook "Johann Sebastian Bach for Children", the second add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition on 142 CDs.
The PDF File.
Don't consider reading as the only option, after you downloaded the PDF. Another possibility is to give it away, to friends, to your cantor or to neighbors.
Of course, after your children read it. If you have children. With this electronic option, you can enjoy all the paintings and the photos coming with Bach's life journey.
The e-Book (EPUB).
However, if someone who received this cute information about the most famous composer of all time and in the entire universe tells you that he or she is not able to read a PDF, then this is the same work as a PDF. However, there are no images and no photos that come with this option.
Actually, this, the oldest biography about Johann Sebastian Bach, better is a short biography. It is written by Bach's son Carl Philipp Emanuel and two more authors. Ready in 1750, Bach's death year and published not earlier but four years later.
The fun that comes with the description of Bach's life is, how people were talking, back then in 1750. The whole necrology is narrated by a professional narrator, and you listen to Bach's music, however, the music sections are not longer than three minutes each.
Listening to this short biography does not spoil further Bach reading of any kind, for example reading our more detailed Bach Biography for Children.
The Necrology about Johann Sebastian Bach from 1750, the fifth add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition on 142 CDs.
Bach – and there is no doubt about – is the most famous composer in the universe and of all time. Plus, he is the icon of the both largest and most famous family of musicians. There is no musician, about whom more personalities, other musicians, scientists, politicians, a president and a pope said exciting and great things. Their tributes are Bach quotes and tributes today.
My husband Peter – he is a sound engineer among others – let these quotes narrate by a professional and added – however, not too much – of Bach's music. A short biography of eight minutes – also with music of the master – is an additional treat. Just test listen to the audio sample here.
The "Bach Quotes and Tributes Medley", the sixth add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition on 142 CDs.
The Bach Music Gesamtwerk or the Bach Music Complete Edition ... and this in the latest edition of 2014. Plus the "Old Bach Gesamtausgabe" (... this is a PDF file with the sheet music of Bach's musical works) as an add-on. Plus another five add-ons on top of that. A whole 142 CDs full of music result in this Bach Music Complete Works of 1,128 titles, which Johann Sebastian Bach composed in his life and which have not been lost in the meantime.
The quality of this complete musical work on 142 CDs is outstanding: the music both in the performance of the musicians, and in technical nature, because most works are remastered in DDD quality. With the six add-ons, this Bach Complete Work really becomes a hit: Did you know, for example, that the audiobook of the Biography of Bach for Children – with 19 musical interruptions – has a running time of about five hours? Plus ... this Bach Music Complete Edition is certainly the only one in which you also receive six add-ons that have to do with Bach, including, for example, the audiobook just mentioned. Bach 4 You, more precisely the Renate Bach Verlag (Renate Bach Publishing House), would like to inspire you for this Bach Music Complete Work with the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe", that is the "Old Bach Complete Edition" of music sheets.
204 hours of music by the Thomas Cantor and in addition the Old Bach Complete Edition of the Leipzig Bach Society from 1851 to 1899 and five more valuable add-ons: Where else can you find something like this?! Since 2014, the issuing music publisher has succeeded in further optimizing the quality and arranging the individual musical works even better and also in such a way that this Bach complete works now fits on 142 CDs instead of 155 CDs. Of course, without missing a single piece. And what the "second" Old Bach Complete Edition is now exactly, you can read below.
Please support our Bach Mission … learn more here.
The Bach Music Complete Works of 2014, that is 142 CDs with 1,228 musical works. In addition, you first get the so-called Old Bach Complete Edition (... Musik Gesamtausgabe). Yes, it's confusing. In Germany, we have two different expressions for both, but most people don't know the difference. Only Bach experts do. While the sheet music collection is add-on #1, there are other add-on options beyond that. In addition to the 142 CDs full of music, the complete works of 1,128 pieces of music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach during his lifetime.

It goes without saying that not a single piece is missing. And if you are now interested in what the Old Bach Music Complete Edition looks like inside, just stay on this page and read on. Shortcut to the shop.
The Bach Complete Edition (... the Bach-Gesamtwerk), that is, the Bach Music Complete Edition, and the Bach Complete Edition(... this time the Bach-Gesamtausgabe), which is also called "Complete Edition" in German. Is it the same? Is it the complete music of Bach? At least that's what we thought when we worked on this website after three years of "living with Bach and his music". Conclusion? The Bach Complete Edition (... in German the Bach-Musik-Gesamtwerk) is at the same time the Bach Complete Edition (... also in German: the Bach Musik Complete Edition), in fact always a box with a lot and a lot of music by Johann Sebastian Bach. Exactly? With the complete music of Bach. On 142 CDs in 142 cardboard slipcases ( ... anything else would be too heavy and also too voluminous).
It is different with the Bach Complete Edition (... Ausgabe) ... completely different. It exists as the "Old Bach Complete Edition" (... Ausgabe) and as the "New Bach Complete Edition" (... Ausgabe) and – to top it all off – also as the "Revised New Bach Complete Edition" (... Ausgabe). The difference is tiny, exciting, but only for real Bach scientists. This Bach-Gesamtausgabe – and the distinction between Bach-Gesamtwerk and Bach-Gesamtausgabe is important – is the compilation of all still existing notes of the musical works of Johann Sebastian Bach on paper, 1851 to 1899, published by the then Bach Society in Leipzig, scanned from an ancient historical edition, converted as PDF with 300 dpi, prepared and of highest quality* ( * ... well these are historical documents, partly 160 years old, so stains and aging are exciting ... and not disturbing). Today this edition is in the public domain. 16,800 pages, notes and text are there, as PDF files, in words sixteen thousand eight hundred ... impressive. And by the way: Only very, very few music sheets are in Bach's handwriting. Everything else is edited 1851 to 1899, but that's still pretty historical, right? Bach-Gesamtwerk, Bach Complete Edition, Neue Bach-Gesamtausgabe, Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe. Is everything clear now?
The "New Bach Complete Edition" (... that is, the sheet music on paper) was created from 1954 to 2007 and cost €16,000 until the end of 2015, then € 20,000. Check here, what's that in your currency. Today!) You have read correctly, every zero is right. The "Revised New Bach Complete Edition" is being created right now, while you are reading here, at this very moment: some volumes already exist, in the next four to five decades the remaining ones will follow. The difference to the "New Bach Complete Edition"? An estimated two percent of the notes have been changed ... because science never rests.
Very important and because of the pretty pictures above and below: You get this "Old Bach Complete Edition" as PDF files for download. So: no paper, no CD, no DVD, no USB stick. Here's your way to the shop, again.
The top right was Mr. Johann Sebastian Bach himself. It wasn't us! How good it is that the 16,800 pages are available as PDF files ... that is so wonderfully space-saving, and you can print out yourself exactly what you want to play tomorrow.

The quality of these 142 CDs in this Bach Music Complete Edition is unusually high. Outstanding. And measured by the price, the quality is almost indescribably excellent. Of course, there are music connoisseurs and music enthusiasts who might prefer the Christmas Oratorio, the Mass in B minor, or some other famous work by the Thomas Cantor performed by the Bach Orchestra Munich, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, or the National Symphony Orchestra Washington. But 99.9 % of all Bach fans or future Bach enthusiasts will certainly be happy with the quality and every aspect of this Bach 4 You offer. That applies for the performance of the renowned musicians, choirs and orchestras and that also applies for the mastering, remastering and sound quality. There are – on our planet – also many, many smaller collections of Bach musical works ... like Bach's cantatas or Bach's passions or Bach's vocal works. And there are other recordings and CD offerings of the Bach complete works. They are actually not better, only different. Or you have to "gather" some of them yourself, that is, collect them together, and finally they then often cost many times more than the complete edition, the Bach Complete Works above. Better ... they are practically not, only different. Or you can "gather" some yourself, that is, search for them and collect them, and eventually they often cost many times more than the Complete Edition, the Bach Music Complete Works above ... from 2014. The edition of 2014 is by the way the current one from Brilliant Classic, a specialized music label for classical music, there is no younger one!
