The indispensable reference book on the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach

The first catalog of all Bach's works, the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (BWV), appeared in 1950 under the authorship of Wolfgang Schmieder. A revised edition of this internationally recognized reference work was published 40 years later, followed by a so-called "small version" with further updates in 1998.

Now created in collaboration with the Bach-Archiv Leipzig is a completely redesigned edition of the BWV, taking account of the 21st century's altered knowledge and usage structures. The aim has been to develop a comprehensive and contemporary reference work for Bach's compositions that would appeal to interested lay readers as well as to specialists familiar with Bach research.

Thematic-Systematic Catalog of the Musical Works of Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV) arranged by Christine Blanken, Christoph Wolff and Peter Wollny edited by Bach-Archiv Leipzig
Founded by Wolfgang Schmieder

-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
-Third, extended edition (German)
