Ouverture (Suite) No. 3 in D Major; BWV 1068 by : Harry Newstone : Johann Sebastian Bach
From early in the 17th century until the form engaged the interest of Johann Sebastian Bach; various notable German composers • including Rosenmüller; Fischer; Fasch and Telemann • had contributed to the development of the orchestral suite or 'Ouverture'; which name betrays its French theatrical origins. From Bach himself only four such suites have come down to us due to the diligence of C.F.Penzel; who was a student at the Thomasschule from 1751; and who made copies of Bach's MSS he found there. Thus; neither the dates nor the order of composition of the suites can be established with any certainty. As to the present suite in D major; recent criticism suggests that it may originally have been written for strings only; and dates; in its final form from around 1731. Penzel's copy of the suite includes significant variants to be played by a solo violin (marked Violino Concertato) which are included here in the Appendices.
The score is newly-edited from the extant sources consisting of sets of parts (some in Bach's autograph) and copyist's scores preserved in the Staastbibliothek zu Berlin • Preussischer Kulturbestitz; Musikabteilung mit Mendelssohn-Archiv. This edition replaces the former Eulenburg miniature score edited by Wilhelm Altmann.
