Date of origin, Work history
um 1720-1723
Date of composition around 1719/1720. The sequence of movements is like that in BWV 199.1, but transposed up by a whole tone and with different instrumentation: Movement 6 features the viola da gamba instead of the viola as the obligato instrument. On the Weimar obligato viola part (see BWV 199.1), there is also an apparently unfinished (somewhat earlier?) alternative version with different instrumental disposition for oboe, violin I/II, viola, violoncello, and basso continuo (see Hofmann BJ 2013 and Wollny BJ 2020)
relation to other works:
is part of BWV diverse [K. Kant.]
