The interweaving melody lines of the high strings contrast with the pronounced rhythmic drive in the bass. In the late 19th century, violinist August Wilhelmj arranged the second movement of Bach's third Orchestral Suite for violin and an accompaniment of strings, piano or organ harmonium. On the score he wrote auf der G-Saite on the G string above the staff for the solo violin, which gave the arrangement its nickname.
In Wilhelmj's version the piece is transposed down from its original key D major to C major. Then the part of the first violins is transposed further down an octave and given to a solo violin that can play the entire melody on its lowest string, the G string.
The dynamic markings added by Wilhelmj are more in line with a romantic interpretation than with the baroque original. As a violin can't play very loudly in its lowest register, all the other parts of Bach's music were firmly reduced in Wilhelmj's version: the keyboard part is to be played staccato and pianissimo, causing the effects of interweaving melodies and of drive in the bass part to get lost.
