Although the exact composition date of JS Bach's third Orchestral Suite is not known it's likely that he wrote it around 1731 and that it was part of the repertoire of his Collegium Musicum in Leipzig.
There are five movements and the second of these is a wordless Aria featuring especially eloquent writing for the violin.
