Partita for Violin No. 3 (Bach)
It takes about 15–18 minutes to perform.
Bach transcribed the Partita as a suite, cataloged as BWV 1006.2 (formerly 1006a).  The music critic Wilhelm Tappert claimed in 1900 that this arrangement was for lute solo, but present research[ by whom?] indicates that it was for an unspecified instrument. 
- the sinfonia which opens the second part of the 1729 cantata Herr Gott, Beherrscher aller Dinge, BWV 120a.
- the opening sinfonia, scored for obbligato organ, oboes, trumpets and strings, of the 1731 cantata Wir danken dir, Gott, wir danken dir, BWV 29, in D major
In 1933 Sergei Rachmaninoff transcribed for piano (and subsequently recorded) the Preludio, Gavotte, and Giga from this partita (as TN 111/1).  An arrangement of the Preludio for jazz trio by Jacques Loussier appeared on his Reflections of Bach album of 1987  and was used as the theme of the BBC Radio 4 music quiz show Counterpoint.
