The autograph manuscript of Johann Sebastian Bach's most renowned and most often played instrumental work was discovered one hundred year after the composer's death, by a curator of Berlin's Konigliche Bibliothek (today's Staatsbibliothek). The collection, consisting of six concertos, was dedicated by Bach to Christian Ludwig, the Margrave of Brandenburg, and this is the reason why Philipp Spitta - Bach's 19th-century biographer - gave the compositions this title.
