Concerto for 2 Harpsichords in C minor, BWV 1062 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)
Leipzig: Composer's manuscript, n.d.(ca.1736).
This manuscript (D B Mus. ms. Bach P 612) contains 2 works of J. S. Bach, Concerto for 2 Harpsichords in C minor, BWV 1062, and Flute Sonata in A major, BWV 1032. The composer first wrote BWV 1062. The bottom 4 (or 3) staves on each page were left unused. Later, the composer started writing BWV 1032 on the unused staves. Up to the first 5 bars of the 2nd movement of BWV 1032 fit in the unused space of the score of BWV 1062. Then the composer continued on the new papers to complete the BWV 1032. Much later, somebody who owned this manuscript tried to separate the two works and cut some of the pages. As a result, the bottom part of the pages 17 through 28, i.e., latter half of the 1st movement of BWV 1032, were lost.
