Program Notes on Air in D Major, BWV 1068 by Bach, J.S. :

This Air is arranged from the second movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068.

This suite was composed in 1731.

The famous second movement, titled Air, was originally composed for strings and continuo.

It is also known under the title Air on the G String, because some arrangements for violin are meant to be played entirely on that string.

This score is an arrangement for violin and piano.

It remains in the original key of D Major.

The violin part is appropriate for Grade 5 violinists.

It is to be played in the first and third positions.

Please note that in this score, all ornaments are authentic.
