Three times? (3rd Suite: Gigue)


3rd Suite  in C major  BWV 1009


Bar 19: Here, Kellner (and Source C and D are the same) writes as follows.

But I have chosen Anna Magdalena's copy:

because I think Bach has changed these notes later for avoid to repeat three times the same rhythm between bar 9 and 20.

And there is a parallel period from bar 57 to 72. Although it is extended, we see the same rhythm as Anna Magdalena at the 3rd time. And if we exchange two notes (a and b), we find the same figuration as Anna Magdalena.

But if you prefer Kellner's figuration, of course, you can play it.
