J.S. Bach: Short Preludes, Fugues, and Fughettas (Edition Peters)


Short Preludes, Fugues and Fughettas is a new Urtext edition of this crucial educational keyboard repertoire by the renowned Bach scholar Christoph Wolff (former Director of the Bach Archive Leipzig). It contains 32 pieces, organized chronologically, mostly originating from the collections that Johann Sebastian Bach made for the instruction of his own children. They are ideal for elementary pianists to develop an understanding of counterpoint and musical form. Includes a new completion, by Robert Levin, of Praeludium in E minor.

The edition extends, with nine additional pieces, and revises the classic Edition Peters publication of Bach's Short Preludes and Fugues (EP200a).
