Primes from partitions?

Are primes derivable from partitions?

"Partitions" or what? I don't think anyone can answer this until you explain what you are talking about!

The expression of a given even number as a sum of two primes is called a "Goldbach partition" of that number.

"A partition is a way of writing an integer as a sum of positive integers where the order of the addends is not significant, possibly subject to one or more additional constraints."

I guess there's nothing new about the term "Goldbach partitions," except their equivalence to "Goldbach [twin] primes."
