Maybe some musicologists dispute the authorship of that work, but who else could have wrote it? Just compare that youthful composition to the 7 toccatas for harpsichord BWV 910 à 916, and the stylistic link will become obvious.

compare it to Johann Peter Kellners works and the stylistic link will be obvious just as well. it does very well fit the galant style. Hamstray 12:55, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

There is the belief that this piece began its life as a work for unaccompanied 5 string cello (or even violin): the fugue subject lies very well for that instrument, and Bach is known to have transcribed at least one of his solo violin pieces for organ. See this article . The earliest known manuscript copy for organ is in Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung.
