Dear Uri Golomb and Aryeh Oron

Thank you for your email of which has been forwarded to me, in which you raise the concerns of many Bach scholars and enthusiasts at the price of the translation of Alfred Durr’s book.

While the hardback edition was primarily intended as a library purchase, I am delighted to be able to let you know that we do intend to bring out a paperback edition of the book (details of exact timing and price are still under discussion) during the second half of next year, which I hope will make it accessible to the wider market/individual Bach enthusiasts to which you refer.

I hope that this is good news.

Meanwhile with best wishes
