As is the case with so many of J. Bach 's chamber works, we know virtually nothing about the circumstances in which the Partita in A minor for unaccompanied flute, BWV was composed. Bach 's other works for unaccompanied instruments other than keyboard and lute -- the Suites for solo cello, BWV and the Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, BWV -- were all informed to one degree or another by his own skill as a string instrument performer this is not to say that he was necessarily accomplished enough to perform them adequately; indeed, evidence indicates that he was not, and perhaps never tried. With the flute Partita, however, Bach was left almost entirely to his own ingenuity, as neither tradition nor personal familiarity could come into much play during the creation of so unlikely a work. Lengthiest of the Partita's four movements is the opening allemande, whose running sixteenth-notes outline a broad binary design. As with those movements from the solo violin and cello works that are exclusively melodic meaning only that no multiple-stopping of the strings is called for -- such as the "Allemanda" from the D minor violin Partita, very similar in plan to this flute allemande -- there are frequent leaps from one register to another as Bach engages to make melodically plain the implied harmonic voices bass, treble, etc. In each half, the approach to the cadence is made via some juicy, chromatically descending miniature arpeggios.

This raises a number of questions and problems which the present edition faces again not only in the preface and notes on interpretation, but also in the musical text itself. Due to the meticulous examination and assessment of all text details, the transition to the repetition of the second part in the Allemande, for example, is structured differently than in most established editions.
