This page contains a collection of piano solo sheet music downloads of "Air on the G String" by J. S. Bach from the baroque era, at multi-levels.
The German composer, Johann Sebastian Bach from the baroque era (1685 – 1750) composed 4 orchestral suites. One of them is Orchestral Suite No. 3, BWV 1068, which has 5 movements. The 2nd movement of it is this "Air," which uses only string instruments. More than 100 years later, the German composer August Wilhelmj (1845 -1908) arranged the 2nd movement, "Air", by changing the original key of D major to the key of C major so that he can play it on his G-string violin. And he titled that version "Air on the G String." That title is now more popular than "The 2nd Movement, Air from Orchestral Suite No. 3, BWV 1068."
