Program Notes

The oldest partially autographed set of parts of Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068 are from around 1730. Bach wrote out the first violin and continuo parts, C. P. E. Bach wrote out the trumpet, oboe, and timpani parts, and J. S. Bach's student Johann Ludwig Krebs wrote out the second violin and viola parts.

An arrangement of the second movement of the suite, Air, by German violinist August Wilhelmj (1845–1908) became known as Air on the G String.
