Not originally on the G strings.  by on February 27th, 2010
This piece has nothing to do with the G string per se. It is the second movement of orchestral suite no. 3 by J. S. Bach arranged for piano. The reason it's called air for the G string is because a german violinist, August Wilhelmj transcribed the movement for violin and piano and in that transcription the violin plays only on the G string and that's why it's so often called Air on the G string. But this Air on the G string is just one transcription of many. It's something like Pachelbel's Canon wich has been arranged for so many instruments that few people know the original version anymore. Anyway it's a great piece.

Beautiful arrangement of Bach's Air  by on September 21st, 2009
Was amazed to find this very nice arrangement for piano solo of Bach's Air. Possible to play a vistá for a more experienced piano player.

D or G string?  by on May 2nd, 2009
This arrangement is very good. A great balance between melody and accompaniment. It does not come across as a simplified piece. My only question is why the title (on the G string), when it's in D major?

pleasantly surprised  by on April 29th, 2009
I was pleasantly surprised to see my download purchase included both versions, the one in the original key, and the exact same piece transposed into C Major (advertised as a simplified version). Thank you for bundling both copies. For my younger students, I would love to see the rhythm also "transposed" into equivalent, less complicated rhythms for the "simplified version". The piece is generally played very slowly, so I would welcome seeing the rhythm converted by doubling everything.....sixteenth notes become eighth notes, eighth notes become quarter notes etc....my younger ones are easily scared off by lots of sixteenth notes:-)
