Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar (1696–1715) was a German prince, son by his second marriage of Johann Ernst III, Duke of Saxe-Weimar. Despite his early death he is remembered as a collector and commissioner of music and as a composer some of whose concertos were arranged for harpsichord or organ by Johann Sebastian Bach, who was court organist in Weimar at the time.

Johann Ernst IV, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, was almost fifteen when he went to study law in Utrecht. As a music-lover, he could really indulge himself in the Netherlands, where he rubbed shoulders, as it were, with one of the most important music printing presses of the world. There, he bought things like a copy of Vivaldi’s brand-new opus 3, L’Estro Armonico (Amsterdam, 1711), which Bach was later to use for his organ concertos BWV 594 and 596.

Unfortunately, on his return to Weimar, Duke Johann Ernst did not have long to enjoy the arts of his extremely productive organist. Soon after leaving Utrecht, he developed a swelling on his leg that proved fatal in 1715, at the age of eighteen. In his own music – predominantly violin concertos – Johann Ernst was greatly inspired by Vivaldi. Telemann had heaped praise upon the noble composer when he was alive, and after his death he published a selection of his music. To be honest, though, the result paled a little alongside the Italian model. Johann Ernst’s rather schematic style concept is also reflected in Bach’s arrangement (BWV 595) of the Allegro from the Violin concerto in C major. Although the original concerto has been lost, Bach also made a complete arrangement for harpsichord, BWV 984. Despite all the repetition and the shrill harmonies, the concerto still has a festive effect, which is due to the fresh, bouncy theme and the hurried alternation between the great organ and the choir organ, which takes place far more than in any other work by Bach.

Bach composed his Concerto for Keyboard in C major (BWV 984) between 1713 and 1714. It is an adaptation of the Violin Concerto in C major, Op. 1 no. 4, by Johann Ernst Prinz von Sachsen-Weimar. It uses only the first movement of this piece (see also BWV 595).
