Given the Dresden connection, Wollny posits the visit of Johann Georg Pisendel to Weimar in 1709 as the origin of the sonata, and that date suits its rather untypical, not to say experimental, nature, lacking the integrative urge that was to become such a feature of Bach's later Weimar and Cothen works.
Perhaps Bach heard the concerto played both ways--in the upper octave on an F trumpet by Johann Ludwig Schreiber, the court trumpeter in Cothen, and in the lower octave on a natural horn by Gottfried Reiche.
The women of the Bach family were indeed excellent singers, and we can get a sense for just how fine a musician Anna Magdalena must have been from the congratulatory cantata "Durchlauchster Leopold" (Most Serene Highness Leopold, BWV 173a); the piece was composed by her husband in honor of their mutual employer and first performed on December 10, 1722, little more than a year after Cothen's leading musical pair had celebrated their wedding.
Until this time Bach was mainly known for his cantatas and keyboard music (including organ), and the Cothen era (when he became Kapellmeister of the court orchestra) had the composer switching gears and concentrating on other solo and ensemble instrumental works.
"There are no intersections along Interstate highways, and no road crossings along runways," reminded Grady Cothen of the Federal Railroad Administration, quoting former FRA Administrator Gil Carmichael.
It surprises me that Bach scholars, including Marissen, perennially show more interest in the early - Leipzig or Cothen - versions of the Brandenburgs in existence before 1721 (agonizing over such minute matters as which member of the Cothen Kapelle played which instrument in which movement) than in the purpose for which the set of six as we know it today was copied out and sent to Berlin.
Cothen begins with an account of the founding of the Southern Baptist Convention and of its goals.

And that is of no small moment when you remember what lives we got out with: Duke McCall and Grady Cothen, Foy Valentine and Keith Parks, Carolyn Crumpler and James Dunn, Randall Lolley and Russell Dilday, Jimmy Allen and Roy Honeycutt.
''Everybody is waiting on them and expecting some significant action,'' Grady Cothen, a former Federal Railroad Administration official, said after Wednesday's wreck.
