JS Bach : Notebook For Anna Magdalena : Henle Edition

Johann Sebastian Bach gave his wife Anna Magdalena two handwritten booksof music. The second one is of particular value with its gilt-edged, ve llum-covered binding. In this little book of 1725 he noted down numerouspiano works in the most different styles – both his own and by other co mposers. The Henle Urtext edition faithfully reproduces the complete contents of this manuscript, aside from the movements from the “French Suites” (HN 71) und “Partitas” (HN 28) in the notebook, which can be found elsewhere in the Henle catalogue. It is also an example of beautiful engraving by hand.
