BWV 1068 The work now known as the Air on a G String is an arrangement for the violin made in the 19th Century from the Air in Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major. Bach originally wrote the suite for his patron Prince Leopold of Anhalt sometime between the years 1717 and 1723. It only attracted this nickname in 1871 when the German violinist August Wilhelmj (1845-1908) made a violin and piano arrangement of the second movement of this orchestral suite. By changing the key 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.
