A beautiful transcription of Bach’s Air on the G String, arranged for four Flutes, consisting of two C Flutes, one Alto and one Bass Flute.

The "Air on the G String" is an adaptation by August Wilhelmj of Johann Sebastian Bach’s "Air". The air is usually played slowly and freely, and features an intertwining harmony and melody.

The original piece is part of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, written for his patron Prince Leopold of Anhalt sometime between the years 1717 and 1723.

The title comes from violinist Wilhelmj’s late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major and transposing the melody down an octave, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string string.
