Johann Sebastian Bach: Magnificat in D

Johann Sebastian Bach

Magnificat in D

BWV 243

Description

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat BWV 243 was composed in its first form in E flat, right at the beginning of Bach’s period in Leipzig, for the Visitation of Mary on 2.7.1723; for a further performance on the 1st day of Christmas, Bach added four extra Christmas movements following a Leipzig tradition. Only in the 1730s did Bach arrange the Magnificat in the well-known version in D; the orchestration was slightly altered, particularly improving the considerable practical performance problems encountered in the E flat major version. Our critical new edition contains the version of the Magnificat in D, based on Bach’s autograph score. For Christmas performances the extra movements are available separately, transposed for performance with the D major version of the Magnificat (Carus 31.243/50).

Reviews

Für versierte Chöre eine lohnenswerte Aufgabe.
Peter Bartetzky, Musik im Bistum Essen 1/2003

Die heute bekanntere Fassung in D-Dur liegt nun auch als Partitur und Klavierauszug als „Stuttgarter Bach-Ausgabe“ im Carus-Verlag vor. Diese Fassung entstand durch Bach selbst ca. 1733 für eine Aufführung des „Lobgesang der Maria“ außerhalb der Weihnachtszeit, sodass die weihnachtlichen Einlagesätze fehlen und diese nun auch als eigene Ausgabe erschienen sind.
