Press Reviews – Bach, New Edition
Please select from the list below to see further details
Working from facsimiles and the digitally scanned originals, Neil Jenkins has produced a faithful restoration of Bach’s scores.
“Jenkins’ main aims were to restore as many of Bach’s original rhythms as possible, respecting stresses and restoring rhyme schemes. But there has been no wilful updating, and notable 19th-century successes have been retained.”
“I have no doubts about the value of the new edition and time and time again it strikes me as dramatically and musically correct and effective.”
“This new version gets to the very heart of the piece in a way that is immediately clear and to the point…..Hearing the work and reading the text it seems to me that Mr Jenkins has also got to the heart of the spiritual as well as the musical core of the work.”
