Like each of J.S. Bach's other harpsichord concertos, excepting perhaps one, the Harpsichord Concerto No. 6 in F major, BWV 1057 is actually a transcription of an earlier concerto conceived for one of the more traditional concerto solo instruments. When Bach made these transcriptions in the 1730s, the keyboard was a newcomer to the concerto scene. Many of the original source works for the harpsichord concertos have been lost, but the one arranged for keyboard use in BWV 1057 is alive and quite well -- for it is none other than the Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 in G major that Bach has reused, transposing the music down a whole step and recasting the original solo violin part for keyboard. The structure of the music remains unchanged in the harpsichord version (and the two important obbligato recorders are still present), but Bach has done much more than simply adapt the solo violin part to make it better fall under the keyboardist's fingers -- he has completely rewritten the part. A great deal of music exists in the solo part where none existed before (the harpsichordist must play where, in the Brandenburg Concerto, the violinist rests), and the textures and figurations of the part are, quite naturally, a great deal richer. In the second movement, Andante, the scoring has been changed noticeably to allow the harpsichordist to take over music originally given to the two recorders; where, in Brandenburg No. 4, the recorders were part of the solo group, here they are members of the ripieno. The finale, marked Presto in Brandenburg No. 4, is now an Allegro assai.

Although originally written for Harpsichord, 2 Recorders, Strings and Continuo, I created this Arrangement of the Concerto in F Major (BWV 1057) for Winds (2 Flutes, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn & Bassoon) & Strings (2 Violins, Viola, Cello & Bass).
