Bach the immortal god of harmony.
-Ludwig van Beethoven, 1801

Though it was written as a movement for the D-Major Orchestral Suite, the Air is one of Bach's most well-known and beloved stand-alone pieces, and an exquisite example of 4-part writing.  It has one of the greatest melodies ever written, a masterful weaving of the middle voices, and a bass line that walks the music irresistibly forwards.

-Charles Jacot
