Product Information

Air, from Orchestral Suite No. 3 In D Major composed by Johann Sebastian Bach - Digital Sheet Music
BWV 1068, aka "Air on the G String"
What's Air for the G String? The piece behind the name is the Air from Bach's Orchestral Suite in D, BWV 1068, scored for four-part string orchestra. This brief movement, a gem of lyric melody, quiet counterpoint, and the masterful orchestration (in the poetic sense) of poignant, inward feeling, was arranged for violin solo with piano accompaniment by the German violinist August Wilhelmj (1845-1908). Transposed into C, the entire solo part (which was the first violin part in the original) fits comfortably on the G string, the lowest and darkest of the violin, and thus, Wilhelmj called it Air for the G String. The Russian-American violinist Mischa Elman (1891-1967) helped popularize this arrangement in concert and recordings, and thus brought renown to the movement behind it. Even though since transcribed for and played on a wide variety of other instruments and media, as well as often in its original form, the name "Air for the G String" now seems inseparably tied to the Air from the Bach's Suite in D.
