The Violin Concerto in E major, BWV 1042, by Johann Sebastian Bach is a concerto for violin, strings and continuo in three movements:

  1. Allegro, meter of ₵, with ritornello, with an overall structure like that of a da capo aria.
  2. Adagio, meter of 3/4, with a ground bass.
  3. Allegro assai, meter of 3/8, with an overall structure of a rondo

While there are two 18th-century scores,[1] neither is autographed; however, Bach re-used the concerto as the model for his Harpsichord Concerto in D major, BWV 1054, found in his 1737–39 autographed manuscript of these works.
