The aim of this combined scholarly and practical edition of the Brandenburg Concerto is to offer a state of the art performance material of this standard work of Baroque music literature, which satisfies the practical needs of performing artists. Instead of a "slow movement", the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 has nothing but two chords. Bach, like Handel in his organ concertos, most likely wanted the solo instruments to insert an improvisation here. But what is easy for the proficient organ soloist in Handel's music turns out to be impossible for the nine solo parts in Bach's piece. Emil Platen's solution "offers a loosely structured elaboration that is placed before the two chords notated by Bach and that uses all of the string instruments. It draws its inspiration from stylistic elements of the concerto, without creating the impression of being an autonomous movement." Die vorliegende Neuausgabe enthalt samtliche Chorale aus Schemellis Gesangbuch in der originalen Reihenfolge. Gegenuber der bisherigen Edition Breitkopf Nr. 730 die uberein Jahrhundert lang ein zuverlassiges Spielmaterial darstellte wurden Format und Stichbild erheblich vergrossert und durch die Erganzung derjeweils ersten Choralstrophe im Notentext dem Benutzer die Handhabung der ,,geistlichen Lieder und Arien zusatzlich erleichtert. Der zweistimmige bezifferte Satz ist unverandert beibehalten und gibt Raum zu eigenen satztechnischen Losungen.

This new edition contains all the Chorales from Schemelli's song book in their original Order. Compared with the former Edition Breitkopf No. 730 which was a standard Performance edition for over one hundred years this new edition has been printed in a larger format and type. This as well as the addition of the first stanza of each Chorale in the musical text makes the Spiritual Songs and Arias still easier to use. The two-part pieces with figured bass have been maintained in the original form which allows the Performer to work out his own realization.
