Description

The Concerto in A Minor (BWV 1044) is often referred to as the "Triple Concerto" and may have been written by Bach for a public concert at Zimmermann's coffee house in Leipzig. The "Triple Concerto" has been composed for orchestra and three soloists (harpsichord, flute and violin), the precise solo instrumentation of the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.

This critical Urtext edition is based on the second printing of the "New Bach Edition" (NBA) volume edited by Dietrich Kilian. He examines the complex genesis of the work from Bach's earlier compositions – e.g. from the Prelude and Fugue for Harpsichord (BWV 894) or the Trio Sonata for Organ (BWV 527). Bach's autograph is lost, but copies by Johann Friedrich Agricola and Johann Gottfried Müthel have been handed down and it is these sources to which the editor refers.
