Description:Taking account of Bach scholarship of the past twenty-five years, the first two volumes of Peter Williams’s classic study of Bach’s organ works are fully revised. This work is a piece-by-piece commentary on this ever-popular repertoire, demonstrating the music’s unique qualities and how we might hear and play it today. The book follows the order of the Bach catalog (BWV): beginning with the sonatas, followed by the »free works » and the chorales, and ending with the doubtful works, including the »newly discovered chorales » of 1985.
