The "Six Three-Part Preludes and Fugues" are regarded as a unique testimony to Mozart's profound interest in the works of Bach. Or was it a brilliant contemporary of his who arranged the two preludes and five fugues by Johann Sebastian, and one fugue by Wilhelm Friedemann for string trio and supplemented the collection with further preludes? The new editions put the music text of Johann Nepomuk David's edition of the parts to the test, especially the editor's practical arrangement, which reflected the performance style of his time.
These new editions go one step further, also in a performance-practical sense. The publication of the score and (orchestral) parts also enables string orchestras to play this piece for the first time – an instrumental possibility that is perfectly legitimate, both musically and historically. It is a fascinating addition to the repertoire that one can recommend to every chamber orchestra.

Jedenfalls schreibt sie am 16.11.1800 an andre: ... Breitkopf & Hartel habe ich indessen uberlassen sie nochmals zu beurtheilen und nach ihren Criterien zu schazen. Ich habe mich ganz von aller Burgschaft dass sie von Mozart sind losgesagt - das ist die Hauptsache um die es mir zu thun ist.
