Dear Carl, I am glad to know you like that! We actually thought to include the original version in D major to help understanding the original meaning of the composer. Thank you again for your kind review.

This was an excellent arrangement of Bach's Air, from Suite no. 3. What I want to highlight at this opportunity is the excellent guidance I received from one of your customer representatives (Julie ?). She was very patient and helpful and with her help I was able to successfully download said piece for printing. Thank you and keep up with your good work!

Rating: 5 Not originally on the G strings. by on February 27, 2010 @2:15 pm PST
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.

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.
Rating: 3 D or G string? by on May 2, 2009 @5:34 am PST
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?
Rating: 5 pleasantly surprised by on April 29, 2009 @7:16 am PST
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:-)
