The first printed score for organ only appeared in the early nineteenth century and was also derived from the autograph manuscript. A year later he set up a music shop and in a publishing house. Corresponding with Breitkopf and the widow of C. Bach, he was able to acquire Bach manuscripts, including that of the Mass in B minor , which he eventually published.
His interests later turned to pedagogy and singing: in Zurich he set up an institute similar to the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin of Carl Friedrich Christian Fasch. There are also later copies of the autograph manuscript in Vienna, made by Johann Christian Oley in the s, and in Berlin, in the library of Princess Anna Amalia ,  which contained an exceptional number of Bach manuscripts.
Bach's former pupil Johann Kirnberger was music teacher to Anna Amalia: like her flute-playing brother Frederick the Great , who employed Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach as court harpsichordist, she was a keen amateur musician, composing and playing the organ.
The royal court was not the only place in Berlin where Bach was performed. The family of Daniel Itzig , banker to Frederick the Great and his father, also provided a cultural milieu for musical connoisseurs: four of his daughters, Sara , Zippora, Fanny and Bella maternal grandmother of Felix Mendelssohn , were all keyboard players.
Sara was the most gifted harpsichordist, of professional standard. When Wilhelm Friedemann Bach moved to Berlin from Dresden , she took lessons from him and provided him with some financial support in his old age. After her marriage to the banker Samuel Salomon Levy in , she ran a weekly musical salon in their residence on the Museuminsel : the concert room housed both a harpsichord and a fortepiano and was large enough to accommodate a chamber orchestra.
With the help of Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel, Sara also built up a significant library of hand copies of Bach manuscripts. Her collection included Bach's organ sonatas, which eventually were passed on to her grandnephew Felix Mendelssohn; there was also a copy of the two harpsichord arrangement of the organ sonatas in the Itzig household, belonging to Sara's sister Fanny.
Sara Levy also commissioned works, including C. Bach's final composition, the Double concerto for harpsichord and fortepiano Sara herself performed in public, including performances at the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin , from its foundation by Carl Friedrich Christian Fasch in until her retirement in Fasch's successor as director of the Sing-Akademie was Carl Friedrich Zelter , another devotee of Bach who later became Mendelssohn's teacher and mentor.
Zelter ensured that Bach's organ works featured in the institution's Ripienschule instrumental concerts: both BWV and BWV were included in the concert programme. The collections of Bachiana of Sara Levy and C.
In late eighteenth century Vienna renewed interest amongst the musical intelligentsia in the "old music" of Bach had given rise to weekly meetings of a musical salon run by van Swieten; in the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart became an active participant. Mozart himself made string quartet arrangements of some of the fugues in the Well Tempered Clavier ; and three of the movements in the string trios for violin, viola and cello, K.
The string trios K. In addition it was assumed that the sources for the organ sonatas used in the transcriptions were those brought back to Vienna by Baron van Swieten. Wolff a has suggested that Mozart's special circumstances in Vienna in point with high probability to a quite different version of events, which makes Mozart's authorship of K. Mozart's contacts with the Bach circle date back to the concert tour with his sister and father when they stayed in London from April until July In his second recital he was requested to perform compositions by Bach's son Johann Christian Bach —the "London Bach"—who befriended the family during their visit.
In in Vienna he came into contact with the Itzig family. Sara's older sister Fanny had moved to Vienna in following her marriage to the Viennese banker Adam Nathan Arnstein.
