The New Must-Have

Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (BWV)

  • contains the new research results since BWV2 (1990) and BWV2a (1998)
  • is based on the previous well-established count of the works, though also systematically includes all works’ versions
  • pursues a new conceptual approach designed to interlink optimally with relevant online databases (e.g., Bach digital, RISM) and other reference sources
  • organizes the accompanying data (surveys of works and sources, work collections,
    dubious and erroneous attributions, diverse indices) in a new, user-friendly system
