Trio Sonata in G major, BWV 1039 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)
Not positive actually if Mr. Brantelid is playing gamba or cello here (he is a cellist by training and the work calls for continuo. Will look for a description of the concert at their website that might say more specifically.)
Scores and Parts
2 unidentified copyists
The manuscript was once owned by the composer himself.
D-B Mus. ms. Bach St 431
Grayscale images converted to black & white; letter-sized, cleaned and duplexed by JDH.
BWV 1039 and BWV 1027, which are thought to be transcriptions of a common lost original, are typeset together for easy comparison.
