The present work originated in Leipzig between 1730 and 1733. It is Johann Sebastian Bach's best-known harpsichord concerto and, from a technical point of view, may be considered as his most typical harpsichord concerto.

Nevertheless, it was still presumably derived from a violin concerto in the same key from Bach's Kothen years (1717-23). Despite the unmistakable originality with which the three-movement Baroque concerto form is treated, and even though all three movements are found in different versions in the Cantatas BWV 146 and BWV 188, Bach's authorship of this work was long put in doubt.
