Bach Harpsichord Concerto no. 6 in F major, BWV 1057

Johann Sebastian Bach composed his Harpsichord Concerto no. 6 in 1738. The work has a span of three movements, and it is in the key of F major. As many of his Harpsichord Concertos, this was actually an arrangement of a piece for a melodic instrument, in this case of the Brandenburg Concerto no. 4 (BWV 1049) which features a violin and two recorders. Leaving the flute parts unchanged, Bach wrote the harpsichord part as a combination of the violin material from the original concerto and a written out continuo. The concerto was first published in 1851.
