Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto for Two Trumpets in C major, RV 537, is a concerto for two
trumpets, string orchestra and basso continuo in three movements, believed to have been
composed in the 1720s. It is Vivaldi's only trumpet concerto. It was published by Ricordi in
1950 after its manuscript was found in a Turin library.

Johann Sebastian Bach - Air on the G string: 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 had "auf der GSaite" (on the G string) printed above the stave for the solo violin, which gave the
arrangement its nickname.
