Bach2000 Teldec

Teldec Edition is a game on tools of the time of Bach, Hanssler edition Edition is modern sounding.

Today's performers of Bach's music divided into two camps: prefer authentic performance, that is, using the tools and methods of Bach and performing Bach on modern instruments. During Bach did not have such large choirs and orchestras, such as in times of Brahms, and even the most ambitious of his works such as mass in b minor and passions, do not involve the performance of large teams. In addition, some chamber works by Bach do not specify instrumentation, so today is known for a very different version of the execution of the same works. In the organ works of Bach almost never indicated registrou and change of manuals. Of the stringed keyboard instruments Bach preferred the clavichord. He met with Silbermann and discussed with him the device of his new tool, by making a contribution to the creation of the modern piano. The music of Bach for some of the tools were often passed to others, for example, Busoni transcribed organ Toccata and Fugue in d minor and other works for piano.
