Air on the G String, from Suite No.3 in D Bach Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Bach wrote four orchestral suites in the baroque style. These use mainly French courtly dance forms such as the bourré, the gavotte, and the minuet. His melodic invention comes to the fore in these suites, and especially in this Air from suite no 3. It has been an immensly popular tune for centuries, and numerous 'new' arrangements emerge every decade. Some are seroius choral arrangements, other jazzier, as in a famous version by the 'Swingle' singers, a French vocal group popular in the 1970s.
