Product Information

Air from Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major, commonly known as Air on the G String, is one of the best known and most popular pieces of classical music in the world and one of the most frequently requested at weddings. It is not surprising then that there are many versions of this music available. However, this unique arrangement for solo piano or electronic keyboard has been transcribed from J.S. Bach's original score for strings (a copy of which is included in this digital download for reference purposes), thereby making this piano transcription one of the most accurate and faithful to the composer's original work.

Careful and subtle use of the sustain pedal will enable the pianist to achieve a smooth melodic line without blurring the harmony and counter-melodies, whilst retaining a semi-detached bassline in keeping with the playing style of the period. Electronic keyboard players might like to try using piano-and-strings or harpsichord-and-strings settings. Suitable for piano/keyboard players of Intermediate technical ability.

The best piano version I've found

I'm not one for writing reviews but after downloading and playing through this arrangement a couple times I have to say it's the best piano version I've found. Although it's a bit tricky in places and there's a few stretches for both hands the effect is worth the effort. The layout is very clear to read and it's interesting to compare the arrangement with the original that's included in the download.
