Misc. Comments

There is a performing edition of this @ Sibley pub. ca.1920 by B&H, edited by Alexander/Alexandre Fareanu, but his dates (birth/death), and hence its general copyright status, are at present unknown (to this writer!) "The Ouverture in G Minor was edited in 1920 by Alexander Fareanu for Breitkopf & Hartel. It is a performing edition, in which "evident mistakes have been silently corrected."" (and the continuo has been realized by Mr. Fareanu, as well.) - Arneson, Arne Jon, "The Orchestral Overtures of Johann Bernhard Bach, 1676-1749". (Yes, there is such a publication about these 4 overtures...) - ES
