BWV 188 reconstructed in its entirety for the first time
The project of publishing Bach's cantatas in a material that can be purchased completely continues to grow with a new edition of a work that made particular demands on the editor. For Breitkopf, the renowned Bach scholar Werner Breig had already brought out new editions of the well-known B-minor Suite (PB/OB 5397, EB 8737) and of the A-minor Suite on which it was based, but now reconstructed for violin, strings and basso continuo (PB/OB 5398). His interest was particularly sparked by the sinfonia, which has been transmitted in an extremely rudimentary fashion. Step by step, Breig reconstructs the entire introductory movement from the final virtuoso organ passage and the da capo indication with corresponding musical incipit. His model for the reconstruction, which was carried out with enormous stylistic authenticity, is an early D-minor violin concerto which is no longer extant in this form, but which Bach later reworked into the Harpsichord Concerto BWV 1052. Performers will enjoy a Bach cantata that is now restored in its entirety for the first time.
