Johann Ernst von Sachsen-Weimar was born in Weimar, the fourth son and sixth child of Johann Ernst III, Duke von Sachsen-Weimar, and second child of the Duke's second wife, Charlotte Dorothea Sophia of Hesse-Homburg.

As a young child the prince took violin lessons from G.C. Eilenstein who was a court musician.

On his return from university, Johann Ernst took lessons in composition with a focus on concertos from the local church organist Johann Gottfried Walther, a cousin of Bach. Walther had previously given the prince keyboard lessons and had given him his Praecepta der musikalischen Composition (Precepts of Musical Composition) as a twelfth birthday present.

Bach produced a number of virtuoso organ (BWV 592–6) and harpsichord (BWV 972–987) arrangements. These included some of the prince's own works (BWV 592, 592a, 595, 982, 984 and 987) as well as works by German and Italian composers

This one is BWV 592.
