Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis - Kleine Ausgabe 1998 (BWV 2a)
Nach der von Wolfgang Schmieder vorgelegten 2. Ausgabe hrsg. von Alfred Dürr und Yoshitake Kobayashi unter Mitarbeit von Kirsten Beißwenger (1998)
The "Little BWV” makes the venerable BWV accessible to a larger circle of users. "Little” means reduced by about a half; but it also means that the volume has been thinned down through the consistent use of concentrated incipits, the reduction of the lengthy source indications and the omission of a listing of available editions in print.
The "Little BWV” is also an update and continuation of its epoch-making "big brother” which, of course, continues to remain available.
