*This piece was almost certainly written with the court trumpeter in Cöthen, Johann Ludwig Schreiber, in mind. The trumpet part is still considered one of the most difficult in the entire repertoire, played on either the natural or the modern valved trumpet. This recording uses the natural trumpet as the valved version was not invented until the end of the 18th century. The trumpet does not play in the second movement, as is common practice in baroque era concerti due to the construction of the instrument, which allows the trumpet to play only in one key. Because concerti often move to a different key in the second movement, the trumpet is unable to play.

This piece was also chosen as the first to be played on the "golden record", a phonograph record containing a broad sample of Earth's common sounds, languages, and music sent into outer space with the two Voyager probes.
