given that Bach had 22 children, it doesn't surprise me that he had two wives! I think the first one must have worn out through exhaustion.
( I don't think he had the wives simultaneously......)
Didn't he write the Anna Magdalena Notebook for his second wife to learn to play clavier?
The symphonic form doesn't exist at the time of Bach, which would make it difficult for him to write one. Bit like all the tuba parts he didn't write either.....!
