I'm wondering if there is any difference between the musical content of the regular blue Bärenreiter Bach scores and the Neue Bach Ausgabe


I have purchased the regular Bärenreiter Toccaten score and I've noticed that the editors for the two editions are the same. I'm only skeptical because of the big difference in the price of the editions, and I'm looking to purchase a good edition of The Well-Tempered Clavier.
playing the piano is so fun yay

It looks like the blue one is based on the Neue Bach Ausgabe. On a suprficial inspection it looks like the main difference is that the blue is paperback and the red is hardback.
