Date of origin, Work history
1720 (probably with extended lead time)
autograph fair copy maybe begun in Karlsbad in summer 1720 (singular watermark of the papermill Joachimsthal/Jáchymov near Karlsbad); the Autograph caption "Libro Primo" refers to the collection of the violoncello soli BWV 1007–1012 as a Libro Secondo or "Pars 2", see title page of the copy by Anna Magdalena Bach (D-B: P 268). Later adaptions of works and movements:
BWV 1001/2 → BWV 539/2 and BWV 1000
BWV 1003 → BWV 964
BWV 1005/1 → BWV 968
BWV 1006.1 → BWV 1006.2
BWV 1006.1/1 → BWV 29/1 and BWV 120.2/4
Regarding Bachs arrangement for keyboard Instrument, compare Agricola 1775: "[Bach] spielte sie selbst oft auf dem Clavichorde, und fügte von Harmonie so viel dazu bey, als er für nöthig befand"; see Dok. III Nr. 808.
