At the end of the 19th century the German violinist August Wilhelmi (1845-1908) decided to adapt J.S. Bach`s Aria from the �Suite for Orchestra in D-major� BWV 1068 for violin and piano. This second movement of Bach`s third orchestral suite is written originally for solo-violin and string orchestra. Wilhelmj transposed the entire solo part, which is a gem of lyric music, into C, so it fits comfortably on the G-string, the lowest string of the violin with a particularly dark and romantic timbre. The harmonic parts he wrote for piano. Though this music was later transcribed for many other instruments, it did not lose its name �Air on the G-String�.
