Flute partita a-minor BWV 1013: arrangement for guitar

(…By examining physical characteristics of this piece, starting with historical ground, I have continued examining the text source. Modern additions often indicated suggestions of editor, which served me well. But alsotheycould interfere with my decisions during the writing,so I decided to use those additions with all their indications and changes as examples but not as a main source. The main sources were
an 18th century copyist’s manuscript (the only known source for the Flute Partita BWV 1013) and modern German addition Breitkopf.
With all these sources I was trying to write a suitable continuoand fingering in order to achieve guitar performance with specific Baroque expression. The basic element of this language is connection between consonance and dissonance, especially for instruments which also function as a foundation. I have tried to find a suitable musical support that would be well-balanced, neither too many nor too little added notes. In case where bass continuo would have too many added notes,the attention of listener could be diverted from significant things in solo part. However, continuo with too little added notes might give the impression of certain emptiness in the music where something is supposed to happen. ..)
