The Bach Complete Edition - in the most recent edition of 2014 - to music. Plus the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe" as encore. And on top of that a gift. A total of 142 CDs full of music result in this Bach complete work of 1,128 titles, which Johann Sebastian Bach composed in his lifetime and which have not disappeared in the meantime. The quality of this complete work on 142 CDs is outstanding: the music both in the performance of the musicians and in its technical nature, because most of the works are remastered in DDD quality. With the two gifts, this Bach complete work really becomes a hit: Did you know, for example, that the audio book of the biography about Bach for Kids - with 66 musical interruptions - has a running time of eight hours after all? And ... this Bach oeuvre is very probably the only one in which you can also choose from 10 different gifts, for example this audio book just mentioned. Bach 4 You", or more precisely "Renate Bach Verlag", would like to inspire you for this Bach complete work with the "Alte Bach complete edition". 204 hours of music by the Thomaskantor for € 119.00 and the Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe of the Leipzig Bach Society from 1851 to 1899, plus a valuable gift? Where else is there such a thing?! Since 2014, the publishing music publisher has succeeded in further optimizing the quality and arranging the individual musical works even better and in such a way that this Bach oeuvre now fits on 142 CDs instead of 155 CDs. Of course, without missing a single piece. And what the Old Bach Complete Edition is now exactly, you can read below.
If you don't like all the data stuff (pdf files or audio book data) and you prefer the real deal you can either decide on the Bach coloring book and you get
even two of them. Or there is our favorite Bach bust, which is just 4 inches small, actually tiny cute and really beautiful.
After creating the "Bach biography for children", we found out, that it is perfect for grownups, too, if you decide not to become a Bach expert after your read. And it's your choice to
get it with 19 music pieces of the master or with 66 music sequences. It's your choice. The "Old Bach Gesamtausgabe", which is 16,800 music sheets comes as a pdf file for
Are there any restrictions? Almost none. Combine electronic stuff with the Bach bust and the Bach coloring book. Order two coloring books instead of other options. However, there are two exceptions: You can only order one Bach bust. Plus you can order only order one little Bach figure and it's not possible to order a combination of these both Bach figurines.
The so called "Alte Bach Gesamtausgabe", which is the "Old Bach Complete Edition". Yes, you are right, it's the same name and is something really different. It is the collection of all of Bach music sheets, which were published in the years from 1851 to 1899. This edition is called "old", as a next one followed. And after that a third one. Of course, it is the gift which you can only get as a pdf download, not on paper. However, that is what the collection looks like, which Peter, my husband, photographed in 3 long days in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany. If you decide for this "Gesamtausgabe", you can still get 3 Bach Coloring Books.
No, you don't get 50 such volumes as an add-on with the purchase of the Bach music complete edition. However, you get the space-saving PDF files of the "Alte Bach-Sesamtausgabe" (The Old Bach Music Complete Edition), namely the 16,800 music sheets of Bach music.
The Bach Music Complete Edition of the year 2014, that is 142 CDs with 1.228 music works. Plus the so-called "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe", which in English is the "Old Bach Complete Edition". Yes, it is confusing. In Germany we have two different expressions for both but people don't know the difference. Just Bach experts do. While the music sheets collection is gift no. 1 there are more gift options to chose from on top of this. First, there are 142 CDs full of music, the total works of 1,128 music pieces, which Johann Sebastian Bach composed during his life. The quality of these works on 142 CDs is outstanding: not just for the performance of the musicians but also for the audio technique. Most of the works are edited and remastered in DDD. Plus with the gifts that come with this purchase of the Bach Music Complete Edition, this will be a real and special discovery. Did you know – for instance – that the audio book of the Bach Biography Bach for Children – with 66 musical breaks – has a run time of eight hours? And this Bach Music Complete Edition is probably the only one where you can chose 4 from 9 different gift options. "Bach 4 You", or better, the Renate Bach Publishing House wants to excite you with the option to obtain the Bach Music Complete Edition with the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe" ("Old Bach Music Sheet Collection"). It is a total of 204 hours of music of the Thomas Cantor for $ 119*, (...plus maybe, if you like it) the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe" of the Leipzig Bach Society from 1851 until 1899 plus 3 more wonderful Bach gift are included. Where else could you find such an offer?! We know: "Bach 4 You", the Bach shop in the "Bach's Bach Mission" is the only place in the Universe. Since 2014 the releasing music label managed to optimize the quality even more and to arrange the pieces in a better way, so that the complete edition is spread on 142 CDs instead of 155 CDs. It goes without saying, that not a single piece is missing. And what the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe" ("Old Bach Complete Edition of Music Sheets") really is, is what you can figure out now or later at the bottom of this page of my website. Shortcut to the shop.
Every single page in the 50 volumes is exciting.
There is the "Gesamtwerk of Bach", which is the "Complete Edition of Bach Music Works" and the Bach-Gesamtausgabe", which is the "Bach Complete Edition" as well ( ... it's strange as in German you can't tell which is which by the name as there are two similar names, which actually mean the same thing). Both are the music of Bach. Confusing, even for Germans. That is what we thought, after we started to work on this particular website after three years with "Bach and his music". The bottom line? The "Bach Gesamtwerk" in German is the same as the Bach Complete Edition, that is to say a box with lots of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. There are 142 CDs in 142 cardboard slipcases ( ... everything else would be too heavy and too bulky). It's different with the Bach-Gesamtausgabe. There is an "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe" and a "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe plus into the bargain there is a "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe". The difference is tiny however it's exciting only for real Bach scientists. This "Bach Gesamtausgabe" is the collection of all still existing music sheets of the music works of Johann Sebastian Bach on paper, published 1851 - 1899 by the Bach Society in Leipzig, photographed by my husband from an age-old historic edition, edited and as a result in a highest quality ( ... okay, there are some historic documents, some of them as old as 160 years with some stains and age wear, but nothing too bothersome). Today they are copyright free. 16,800 pages, notes and text – as a PDF of 300 dpi – it's about notes and text – on sixteen thousand eight hundred pages ... impressive! The difference between the "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe" and the "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe" is marginal. However, not for Bach scientists. And I want to mention, that there are only a few note sheets with Bach's handwriting. Everything else is edited in 1851 - 1899, that's still historic enough, am I correct? The "Bach Gesamtwerk", the "Bach Complete Edition", the "Alte Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "Old Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe", the "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe". Is it all clear now?
The "New Bach-Gesamtausgabe" was released between 1954 and 2007 and the price tag until the end of 2015, was approximately $18,000. Later, from 2016 and today it is around $ 23,000. Yes, you can trust your eyes, every zero is correct. The "New Revised Bach-Gesamtausgabe" comes into being right now: three volumes are already available, in the oncoming two to five decades the "rest" will follow. The difference compared to the "Old Bach- Gesamtausgabe"? Some estimated 2% of the notes are changed per edition ... – because science never sleeps.
Very important and because of the nice cute pic above: This "Old Bach- Gesamtausgabe" is what you get with the purchase as a PDF file. So, it's not on paper, no CD, no DVD, no USB-stick. Here you get to the shop again.
On the right sheet: that was Johann Sebastian Bach personally. Please don't blame us! How good it will be for you to receive these 16,800 music sheets as a PDF file ... that is so wonderfully room saving and you print yourself, what you need to make music tomorrow.
The quality of these 142 CDs with the music works of Bach is extraordinarily high. Excellent. And as measured by the price the quality is almost indescribable. It goes without saying there are music experts and music connoisseurs, who might like the Christmas Oratorio, the H-Minor Mass or a certain different work of the Thomas Cantor better when the London Philharmonic Orchestra performs it or is presented by the Thomas Boys Choir in Leipzig. However 99% of all Bach fans or potential future Bach enthusiasts will be extremely happy with all aspects of this superb set; the recording quality, the arrangement, the musicians, as well as the exquisite design and quality of the packaging materials. There are – on our Planet – many, many smaller collection of Bach music works – like Bach's cantatas or Bach's vocal works. And there are more recordings and more CD offers. Usually they are not better, but just different. But then you have to locate and collect them, that is to say to shop for them and finally the price tag is many times more than the Complete Edition of the Bach Music Works above.

No. 3: The cool Bach gifts in the shop at "Bach 4 You". What a variety, how many cool gift ideas.
One publishing house, one author and one mission. The publishing house, that is first of all me, Renate Bach and the name of the publishing house is to the point: Renate Bach Verlag, which is Renate Bach Publishing House in English, "Bach 4 You". However, our "mission" is my husband's as well, Peter Bach jr. and his project "Bach ueber Bach" which is "Bach on Bach" in English. Together the two of us have got into our heads to spread the music works and the life of Johann Sebastian Bach plus the knowledge about the famous family of musicians, with our common "Johann Sebastian Bach Mission".
Two creative individuals on the international Johann Sebastian Bach Dream Team: Renate and her husband Peter Bach jr., who is related to the composer, at a somewhat far distance.
The Johann Sebastian Bach Dream Team: a bunch of artists, creatives, native speakers, translators and narrators – from Wechmar to Washington, D.C., from Kiev to Beijing – who support and help both Bachs dynamically in their mission
Of course there are many, many more gift ideas in the shop "Bach 4 You" than the ten gifts shown above. Anyway: To browse a little there is just as much fun as visiting the homepage of my husband "Bach about Bach". You don't even have to know what you're looking for at "Bach 4 You", you'll actually find some great ideas and some suggestions to replace a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers for your friends as a souvenir.

The voucher is also the right one if you can't decide on the second Bach gift today. Alternatively, a special idea: If you want a different calendar than the Bach calendar suggested above, then redeem the voucher and each of the 99 music calendars, both fresh and fresh from the press, will be exactly 10 euros cheaper.
Two composers calendars. They are permitted - as an exception - to end the page regarding the Bach Music Complete Edition here. Okay, that is now advertisement and that is for all 99 music calendars of the small calendar publishing house in Germany with the name of "Bach 4 You". These composers calendars with 12 portraits (... on the left) and 12 monuments (... on the right) of the real masters of classical music are two of the 33 composers calendars, that "Bach 4 You" offers.
One Bach calendar on the left, the little Bach figure on the right.
The Bach beer stein. Better? The modern Bach beer stein, as there are two historical Bach beer steins as well. On the right side there is the 2020 pipe organ calendar, one of more as every a year a new pipe organ calendar is published and the pipe organ calendars of the years before are still available.
