From the Publisher

The B minor Suite has a special place among the four extant orchestral suites by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1066-1069), for two reasons: it is the only suite that calls for only one wind instrument, and the only one with extensive solo passages for one instrument. Since, moreover, it is essentially Bach's only composition for solo flute with orchestra, it enjoys great favour among flutists.

A proper string ensemble is not always at one's disposal. Therefore an arrangement {or flute and obbligato harpsichord has been prepared similar to one Bach himself might have written. The aim here has been to do nothing that Bach himself would not have done, yet to refrain from doing everything of which he was capable.
