From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

August Wilhelmj (German pronunciation: [vlhlmi]; 21 September 1845, Usingen 22 January 1908, London) was a German violinist.

He has become famous for his late nineteenth century arrangement of the second movement of J. S. Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 for the violin and piano, known as Air on the G String.

Among his pupils was American violinist Nahan Franko and the multi-talented Canadian musician Donald Heins.
