Misc. Notes:

Source, alternative formats, and notes:
From Pandora Records's album titled "Incomplete and Controversial Sonatas," Pan105. Ogg Vorbis files can be found here.

Instruments and tuning:
The flute used is a copy of an instrument by W. Beukers which was made in the late 1700's. The maker is K. Kinoshita of Japan.

Performance notes:
This A major sonata has an incomplete first movement. Alex Murray compares it to the fifth Brandenburg concerto, and suggests that a flute cadenza, like the long harpsichord cadenza in the 5th Brandenburg, could have originally been a part of the manuscript. Accordingly, Martha Goldstein wrote a completion with this aim.

Misc. Notes:

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.

Misc. Comments

  • The first movement (Vivace) is missing from some urtext editions. The reason for this is that the autograph is incomplete, and there are 45-48 bars missing. These have been reconstructed in different ways by different editors, but an urtext edition may not include these additions. Therefore, some editions have this movement and others don't have it.
