Misc. Comments

Barthold Kuijken, in his introduction to III/4.1 Flute Concertos I in The Packard Humanities project C.P.E. Bach: The Complete Works;
The Concerto in G major was originally composed for the organ, as is clear from the autograph in D-B, Mus. ms. Bach P 354. The partially autograph score in D-B, Mus. ms. Bach P 769 offers the unusual opportunity to observe Bach’s process of arranging an existing concerto as a work for a new instrument. Bach directed his copyist Anon. 303 to draft an unfigured score of the organ concerto Wq 34, leaving one staff empty. On this staff Bach himself entered the flute line in measures where it differs from the organ right hand, and indicated with custodes those measures where the flute should match the organ. He also completed and changed the accompaniment parts where necessary, and added figures. NV 1790 gives 1755 as the date for Wq 34; the arrangement as Wq 169 could date from the 1760s, as with Wq 166–168, since all four concertos show essentially the same approach for the flute solos.
