Air For The G String
Bach, JS

Musicians Publications presents J.S. Bach s Air For The G String arranged for flexible flute quartet by Bill Holcombe. Scored for 4 C flutes, or 2 C flutes, alto flute, and bass flute, this arrangement is flexible for whatever instrumentation is available for your quartet!

Air is a piece from Bach s Third Orchestral Suite in D Major, BWV 1068. The Third Suite may be the most famous of the four on account of its meltingly beautiful Air. One of the most popular and arranged pieces of all time, it achieved special notoriety through August Wilhelmj s version for the violin G string (1871). The Air s binary form two halves, each repeated and its stepping bass overlaid with a long, sustained melodic line are standard Baroque procedures, but its poignant effect transcends all formulas. - Jane Vial Jaffe
