(From the latest ArkivMusic newsletter of 28 mar 2012)

“Since its inception over 50 years ago, Teldec's Das Alte Werk label has been home to many outstanding and influential recordings that helped establish historically informed performance practice as an important new way to hear masterpieces of the Baroque and more, spearheaded by the label's groundbreaking Bach cantata recordings by Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Gustav Leonhardt.

From this foundation came the idea to record all of Bach's music -- a monumental achievement that culminated in the release of Teldec's Complete Bach Edition for Bach's 250th anniversary in 2000. This extraordinary box is now available once again at ArkivMusic at a new, dramatically lower price.
