Yes, we did it: Here my husband Peter is photographing in the museum in Leipzig, in Saxony. 8.400 photos x 2 pages = 16.800 sheets of music. Great fun for his back, because turning the pages required a "flowing movement" under the camera, then leaning back to avoid being in the picture yourself. Above you can see the laptop, with which we immediately checked the quality "in the field". On the left is a part of the volumes, red edition.
Even a slightly different position for taking pictures helps a little. On the right, the blue edition is at the top, a part of a green and a brown one further down. An edition is published over a period of 50 years. In our time, the "Revised New Bach Complete Edition" has been completed and work is already underway on the next one. It will be printed long after 2050.
The so-called "Old Bach Complete Edition". Yes, you are right, it sounds as if it is the same as the "Bach Complete Works". And then you add "old" ... that combined is the "Old" Bach Complete Edition. In German, it's actually a wordplay and it's confusing. And what now is what? In German the word "work" stands for the music, for instance on CDs, the term "Ausgabe", also sort of "work", for the "Bachish" music sheets published between 1851 and 1899. So the Complete Edition and the Complete Works are two completely different kind of animals. This edition above is called "old", because another – later – followed. And after that a third one. Of course, it is the gift that you "only" can receive as a PDF download, not on paper. However, this is the collection that Peter, my husband, photographed on 3 super long days in Leipzig, in Saxony, Germany. So actually you get both: The Bach Musik Gesamtwerk and the Bach Musik Gesamtausgabe, which is the Bach Music Complete Works and the Bach Music Complete Edition. Sort of. Yes ... indeed confusing.
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), namely 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 Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition ( ... music on 142 CDs).
The Audio Book.
It's not only for children, but for grownups, too. It is a more than 8 hours biography about Johann Sebastian Bach for children. Plus there are 19 "time-outs" with Bach's music. The whole production is narrated by a professional narrator and the main purpose is not to learn about all the details, which are listed in the regular biographies about the Thomas Cantor.
Entertainment is – aside of transportation of the most important facts – 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 music about the Thomas Cantor.
The audiobook "Johann Sebastian Bach for Children", the second Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
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. Or you copy it and support our Bach mission's goal.
With this electronical option, you can enjoy all the paintings and the photos coming with Bach's life journey.

However, if somebody, that got this cute information regarding the most famous composer of all time and in the whole Universe tells you, that he or she is not capable to read a PDF, here's the same work as an e-book. However, there are no pictures and no photos coming with this option.
The e-book "Johann Sebastian Bach for Children", the fourth Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
Actually this is the oldest biography about Johann Sebastian Bach, better it 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 4 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 3 minutes each.
Listening to this short biography does not spoil further Bach reading of any kind, for example reading a more detailed Bach biography.
The Bach necrology from 1750, the fifth Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
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 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 8 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 Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
We waited many years for exactly that Little Bach Figure, because we knew, how cute it would look. We even thought about creating one ourselves. There was a Martin Luther around for many years, however no Bach. And ordering one just for us ... that would have been too much money, even if we had ordered in a huge number of copies. Now, it's "alive" and it's one of the cutest Bach items in the shop and definitely the cutest Bach add-on of the 10 coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
The Little Johann Sebastian Bach Figure, the seventh Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
It actually is the cutest of 4 Bach busts, which you can buy in the publishing house "Bach 4 You". Its height is 3.9 inches and its weight is 0.22 lbs.! Bottomline: It is one of the two cute add-ons coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
The miniature Bach bust, the eighth Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
Actually this Bach coloring book is not for your to color. But it's perfect if your kids are in the matching phase of their life.
If you have no children, or they are still too young, or they prefer spending their time on the internet, it might be the perfect gift for grandchildren, neighborhood children, friend's children or the next kindergarten.
Peter, my husband, created 17 stations in Bach's life that are interesting. After that he asked his cousin Briana Bach-Hertzog to draw these situations and I created "all the rest". Coming with these coloring challenges there is a little bilingual biography, probably the shortest short biography about Bach in the world. It's in German and English. If there are kids around in the matching age, it is definitely a really precious add-on, coming with the Bach Musik Complete Edition.
The Bach coloring book, the ninth Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
The 10th Bach add-on is sort of little complicated. It is a current music calendar. However, what means "current"? As a calendar publisher I calculate in seasons, not in years. That means, in November and December 2019 you receive the music calendar above for 2020. In January and in February 2020 the same thing is true. From March or April 2020 we send you the music calendar 2021. A funny option: You might get one more music calendar for free, when there are some left of the past season. Please note, that this particular Bach add-on is not a guaranteed item. It might happen, that you receive a different music calendar than displayed above, if the last such calendar left our publishing house, and we didn't yet have the time to change the picture. So, we ask for your acceptance of any music calendar with your purchase, coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition. Important and attention: In any case of doubt it is the publishing houses decision, which calendar will be the add-on, plus also for which year that will be ... this acknowledgment is agreed, when you order this item package coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
A Bach calendar or a music calendar, size DIN A4 = 8.3 x 11.7 inch = 210 x 297 mm, of our choice (!), the tenth Bach add-on coming with the Bach Music Complete Edition.
The Bach Music Complete Edition or the "Bach Musik Gesamtwerk" ... in the latest edition of 2014, plus the "Old Bach Gesamtausgabe" (... this is a PDF with the music sheets with Bach's musical works) as an add-on. Plus a gift on top of it. Or two other gifts on top. A total of 142 CDs full of music make up this Bach Music Complete Edition of 1,128 titles that Johann Sebastian Bach composed in his lifetime and which have not disappeared in the meantime. The quality of this complete work of music on 142 CDs is outstanding: The music both in the performance of the musicians and in technical nature, because most of the works are remastered in DDD quality. With the 2 gifts that come with it, this complete Bach oeuvre becomes a real hit: Did you know, for example, that the audiobook of the Bach biography for children – with 66 musical breaks – has a running time of at least eight hours? And ... this complete Bach oeuvre is very probably the only one where you can choose from 10 different gifts, including this audiobook just mentioned. "Bach 4 You", or more precisely the Renate Bach Publishing House, would like to inspire you for this complete music work of Bach with the "Old Bach Gesamtausgabe". 204 hours of music by the Thomas Cantor for € 119,00 and in addition the "Alte Musik-Gesamtausgabe" of the Leipzig Bach Society from 1851 to 1899 and beyond that also 2 valuable gifts: Where else can you find such a thing? Since 2014, the music publishers have succeeded in further optimizing the quality and arranging the individual musical works even better and in such a way that this complete Bach oeuvre now fits on 142 CDs instead of 155 CDs. Of course, without missing a single piece. And what exactly the Old Bach Complete Edition is now, you can read below.
Please support our Bach mission … learn more.
There is the "Gesamtwerk of Bach", which is the "Complete Edition of Bach Music Works" and the "Bach-Gesamtausgabe", which is the "Bach Complete Edition" as well (... it's strange as in German you can't tell which is which by the name as there are two similar names, which actually mean the same thing). Both are the music of Bach. Confusing, even for Germans. That is what we thought, after we started to work on this particular website after three years with "Bach and his music". The bottom line? The "Bach Gesamtwerk" in German is the same as the Bach Complete Edition, that is to say a box with lots of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. There are 142 CDs in 142 cardboard slipcases (... everything else would be too heavy and too bulky). It's different with the Bach-Gesamtausgabe. There is an "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe" and a "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe plus into the bargain there is a "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe". The difference is tiny however it's exciting only for real Bach scientists. This "Bach Gesamtausgabe" is the collection of all still existing music sheets of the music works of Johann Sebastian Bach on paper, published 1851 - 1899 by the Bach Society in Leipzig, photographed by my husband from an age-old historic edition, edited and as a result in the highest quality ( ... okay, there are some historic documents, some of them as old as 160 years with some stains and age wear, but nothing too bothersome). Today they are copyright free. 16,800 pages, notes and text – as a PDF of 300 dpi – it's about notes and text – on sixteen thousand eight hundred pages ... impressive! The difference between the "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe" and the "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe" is marginal. However, not for Bach scientists. And I want to mention, that there are only a few note sheets with Bach's handwriting. Everything else is edited in 1851 - 1899, that's still historic enough, am I correct? The "Bach Gesamtwerk", the "Bach Complete Edition", the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe". Is it all clear now?
The "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe" was released between 1954 and 2007 and the price tag until the end of 2015, was approximately $18,000. Later, from 2016 and today it is around $ 23,000. Yes, you can trust your eyes, every zero is correct. The "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe" comes into being right now: three volumes are already available, in the oncoming two to five decades the "rest" will follow. The difference compared to the "Old Bach- Gesamtausgabe"? Some estimated 2% of the notes are changed per edition ... because science never sleeps.
Very important and because of the nice cute pic above: This "Old Bach- Gesamtausgabe" is what you get with the purchase as a PDF file. So, it's not on paper, no CD, no DVD, no USB-stick. Here you get 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.
