Philip Posted April 18, 2013 Share Posted April 18, 2013 Not for the first time, I am hoping to draw on the wider experiences of some of the members of this board in seeking some advice on repertoire. I have played through most of the 8 Short P&Fs, and have also dabbled in BWV 568 (Prelude in G, with no attached Fugue) and have done some work on the 'St Anne' Fugue, but think it is probably about time I set about learning some more JSB organ music; I play some of the Chorale Preludes (Nun komm - the first one, Wachet Auf etc) but would like to tackle some of the 'Great' Prelude and Fugues. My question then - what is a good starting place, in terms of being approachable and particularly worthwhile music to learn? Do any members here have any particular favourites which they would commend to me? I realise there is also a question of which editions you use to play them - previously I have bought Novello but I realise they are not the most scholarly editions which exist. Clearly much can be downloaded from the IMSLP website - is this sufficiently reliable or should I look at buying printed scores? Any advice gratefully received and any associated discussion welcomed with interest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
