4.0 out of 5 stars Juat what I needed, 7 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Complete Bach Edition [USB MEMORY STICK] (Audio CD)
This USB edition of Bach's complete works fulfills a very real need to me. I spend much of my time business-travelling, and I rely on Bach's music for spiritual refreshment - I need it as much as the air I breathe. With this practical USB in my pocket I can always listen to Bach when I am on the move on planes and trains or during the lonely hotel nights away from home and family. Consequently, I am very satisfied with the purchase. I will not extoll the high quality of the performances because this has already been done before in the detailed online reviews available elsewhere. But I can praise the idea of packaging the music, PDF's, documentary and other information, as well as the handy program provided to select any piece you want. I don't give it 5 stars merely because the texts of the cantatas are not included, but these are easy to obtain online, anyway. It doesn't take a genius to figure that a CD will sound better than a compressed mp3 file, but I knew that well enough before I purchased the set. Nevertheless, at the encoding rate of 320 KBPS, with the mobile equipment I use (aided by high-quality headphones) this is perfectly fine for me. For top-quality audiophile levels of sound purity I have my CD set of Bach's complete works waiting back at home, anyway. So, if you need Bach on the move (and don't want to spent ages encoding your 150 CD Bach collection in a usable way) then this is definitely good for you.
