Comments:This recording, which has been re-issued by the Musical Heritage Society, is probably the better of two recordings ever made of this attributed piece. Indeed it is not J. S. Bach, but I have a suspician that K. P. E. Bach may have written it as a child, especially since most of the extant manuscript is in his handwriting. The music is poignantly simple, and the performance is well worth the hearing, if it's still available.
