The present volume includes the seven concerti in which a solo keyboard (originally harpsichord) is the only or main soloist (BWV 1057 also features two recorders or flutes). These concerti were composed in Leipzig in the years 1735 ff., and are almost completetly based on earlier extant or lost concerti by Bach for violin and/or wind instruments. Not included in this volume are: the concerti for more than one keyboard (BWV 1060-1065); the Concerto in A Minor for flute, violin and keyboard (BWV 1044); or the fragmentary Concerto in D Minor for keyboard and oboe (BWV 1059).
This Dover edition, first published in 1985, is an unabridged republication of seven keyboard concerti from Volume (Year) 17 (slated for 1867, actually published 1869; second volume of the series Kammermusik, edited by Wilhelm Rust) of the set Johann Sebastian Bach's Werke, originally published by the Bach-Gesellschaft in Leipzig.
