  • BWV 1056R – Violin Concerto in G minor / Oboe Concerto in G minor (reconstructed from BWV 1056)
  • BWV 1059R – Oboe Concerto in D minor (reconstructed from BWV 1059 and associated cantatas – the most spurious reconstruction, because there is no more than a 9-bar fragment of this piece surviving)
  • BWV 1060R – Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C minor/D minor (reconstructed from BWV 1060)
