As the most comprehensive Bach collection, the library features a matchless array of manuscripts, rare books and early editions. Next to the State Library in Berlin it contains the largest collection of original Bach sources in the world.
The library systematically expands its collection by acquiring all relevant current publications and recordings as well as, whenever possible, rare materials on the antiquarian market. Have a look at our latest collectibles!
The books and manuscripts of our precious collection require a special restorative care. By adopting a book, you donate the costs of restoration and support thereby its preservation. Visit our book adoption shop and choose your book!
