I have had so many exciting projects of Bach’s work, and have almost solely relied on Bärenreiter Editions. So, for our performances, the importance of the “New Bach Complete Edition” is far beyond description. For me, the most exciting edition is the B-minor Mass in the “Revised Edition”. Everyone expected the revision for a long time. Many other editions had been released, but finally, Uwe Wolf meticulously scrutinized the autograph, and the best edition was published. This whole story is so valuable, not only for individual performances but also for the history of Bach’s performance. 

This is only one of many other valuable aspects of Bärenreiter, and I can never thank you enough!!
