Info Air Sheet Music Bach
Air on the G String is August Wilhelmj’s arrangement of the second movement in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068.
The arrangement differs from the original in that the part of the first violins is transposed down so that it can be played entirely on a violin’s lowest string, i.e. the G string, it is played by a single violin (instead of by the first violins as a group), and that the rest of the music is reduced to an accompaniment that obfuscates most of the detail of the original.
Bach’s third Orchestral Suite in D major, composed in the first half of the 18th century, has an «Air» as second movement, following its French overture opening movement. The suite is composed for three trumpets,timpani, two oboes, strings (two violin parts and a viola part), and basso continuo. In the second movement of the suite however only the strings and the continuo play. This is the only movement of the suite where all other instruments are silent.
The music of the «Air» is written down on four staves, for first violins, second violins, violas, and continuo. The eerie, interweaving melody lines of the high strings contrast with a pronounced rhythmic drive in the bass.
An air (Italian: «aria»; also ayr, ayre in French) is various song-like vocal or instrumental compositions, and can also be applied to the interchangeable melodies of folk songs and ballads. It is a variant of the musical song form often referred to (in opera, cantata andoratorio) as aria.
