Scholarly-critical Urtext performing edition based on the New Bach Edition. With fingering for performance on modern Pianos as well as a commentary regarding the fingering. Division of parts between the hands based on Bach#s original print. Bach#s Goldberg Variations have remained a challenge for every Harpsichord player and pianist to the present day. One special problem with performances on a modern Piano is that Bach wrote this work for a two-manual Harpsichord. Ragna Schirmer#s fingering offers the most convenient solutions for the many crossings of the hands. Ragna Schirmer has already provided fingering for the Bärenreiter edition of Bach#s Six Partitas: First Part of the Clavier Übung (BA 5247).
