Violin Partita No.3 in E major, BWV 1006 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)
|For collections of all Bach's violin sonatas and partitas, see 6 Violin Sonatas and Partitas, BWV 1001-1006.|
For Violin solo (Composer)
For Trumpet solo (Rondeau)
Alfred Dörffel (1821–1905)
Because it was not available for consultation at the time, Dörffel did not use Bach's autograph manuscript as a source for this edition. The BGA therefore contains occasional differences from the autograph. Perfomers are urged to consult the J.S. Bach autograph, or a modern critical edition, to settle questions of interpretation (especially in matters of phrasing and articulation).
This new typeset has errors, starting with a missing slur in the 2nd bar and ending with incorrectly indicated slurs in the last bar. Equally musically damaging is the alteration of Bach's 16th-note beaming, starting in bar 13, that gives clues as to which notes are to be played as open strings (in this passage, it is the E string, at bar 63 it is the A). Several errors occur in bar 135 and there may be other errors. Performers are again referred to Bach's autograph score available at the IMSLP page for the complete Sonatas and Partitas or a modern critical edition.
