The Inventions and Sinfonias, contemporaneous with the first part of the Well-tempered Clavier, even more than the latter indicate clearly that keyboard instruction in Bach's day was at the same time instruction in composition. The musical text of the present edition follows Bach's fair copy of 1723 and includes in the Appendix ornamented versions from manuscripts from Bach's circle. With fingerings.

    I am a piano teacher and would highly recommend this copy of the Bach Italian Concerto. It is urtext but has very good fingering. The copy of paper is very good, sturdy, clean, and very clear to read. The measures and notes are spaced out nicely without cluttering . The book...

    appear just a bit wider than the average book which is good because things look better.

    I would rank the Barenreiter editions of Bach's works as the best ones on the market, rivaled only by G Henle. The sources used for these editions ensure that the end product is Bach and only Bach: no outside editor additions. This version has fingering, which a companion edition...

    does not. Most students need finger recommendations. Everything else is pure Bach. The only drawback to the Barenreiter editions is that of cost. For students who really cannot afford to invest in these editions, I have found the Peters editions by Landschoff to be quite good. While this volume gets first place in the quality category, the Peters edition gets "best value for the money." The Henle editions are quite close to thia edition and is another good consideration.
