Date of origin, Work history
um 1737-1738
Date of composition around 1737-1738 (due to the involvement of scribe Johann Wilhelm Machts, see Wollny BJ 2016) for a member of the Leipzig scholarly family Rivinus; probably Professor Johann Florens Rivinus (godfather of J. Christian Bach), for his birthday (27th July)? Without the Oboe d’amore/Violin I preserved, but reconstructable based on the template, see BWV 36.1 (which was composed in April/May 1725 for the birthday of an academic teacher and possibly performed again on April 9, 1731, for the birthday celebration of the Thomasschulrector Johann Matthias Gesner on the occasion of his 40th birthday)
