A virtuosic concerto movement serving as an introduction to a piece of sacred music? Such is the case of the cantata »Falsche Welt, dir trau ich nicht« (»False world, I trust you not«). Here, Bach used the first movement of Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 as an instrumental sinfonia – and of course with underlying significance: the rhythmically capricious horn motif of what was originally a piece about hunting functions in the context of the cantata as a musical commentary on the »false world«.
