Edition Bachakademie Vol 136 - Anna Magdalena Clavier Book
It was set to a melody written by Johann Crüger. The Anna Magdalena Bach Book, as is well known, contains pieces by other composers, C. P. E. and Johann Christian Bach, Couperin, and Hasse among them. These are pieces for which the Bach family had particular affection; that alone is enough to make them interesting to contemporary listeners. Most, with the possible exception of an occasional march, are musically interesting as well. Two of the French Suites made their way into this book. Behringer and his peers have created a beguiling collection of music, well played and sung, of interest to scholars and to everyday music-lovers as well.
