F. Uhlmann (EB 8201) arranged the Partita in C minor BWV 997 for flute and guitar and set it in D minor. According to the state of knowledge in the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (Bach Works Catalogue), in which BWV 997 was called a "suite" until the small 1998 edition, Uhlmann also chose this title. Sources for both lute-piano and lute have been handed down from the first half of the 18th century, so that the use of the guitar was obvious. The flute part was arranged by Peter Wirz.
A. Krause (EB 8234), however, followed the title of a Leipzig transcription (J. C. Weyrauch, 1730s) in his arrangement for solo guitar with "Partita", since Bach also called works with a loose sequence of movements, such as the one presented here, partitas. The arrangement is in B minor, but the original pitch of C minor can be achieved by using the capo.
