Selected Piano (Keyboard) Music of
J. S. Bach

The below are mostly Schirmer editions, with some Kalmus, Salabert, Ricordi mixed in. These are fine for casual use, the Busoni and Tausig editions are respected for their historical perspective and insight into their era of performance practice, the mixed collections of popular Bach works are a good value and fine for kids.
However. . . If you are a serious student, you must use authoritative editions for Bach, as very few of his original manuscripts survived into the age of published music, and everything published from the early 19th century on, was based on someone's - often a noted pianist of the period - opinion (that's why the Busoni/Tausig are interesting to puruse). So, scholarship enters the picture, and the use of the word "Urtext" (as close to original text as possible) takes on significant meaning.
The most authoritative editons are published by G. Henle Verlag (Germany). Henle editions are expensive, but are editions that will last a lifetime (at least yours and mine...) in terms of accurately representing what the Bach scholars believe is the closest representation to what the 'ol boy composed.

Check out the below, but also take some time to visit the Henle web pages on this site. I am not trying to steer anyone away from the low priced editions below, it's just that if you were a serious pianist and walked into my studio with a Schirmer/Czerny edition, I would insist you open the window and heave it, and get a respected edition (BTW - there are other wonderful editions of Bach besides Henle, but I have compared scores and find Henle the best for J.S. Bach).

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Note regarding Jesu, Joy above - from Dr. Vaga. . .
The individual sheet of "Jesu Joy" above is rather difficult and awkward, in my opinion, more of an advanced piano arrangement. You must be able to comfortably reach 10ths in the left hand, and have very good control of double-notes in the right hand. If you're looking for an intermediate version of this work, the best arrangement I have found at the intermediate level is in the following collection. Check the contents, and if there are other works that you would enjoy, get this collection as it contains some real gems -- most notably the 18th variation of the Rachmaninoff "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" -- an otherwise impossible to find piece these days! - RV
