An arrangement of Bach’s Air on the G String, for Cornet, Trumpet or Flugelhorn with Piano accompaniment; re-named Air on the Second Valve!

Players could play the original melody first time, and second time play my ornamented version.

This is a nice chart for a concert, gig or recital; or just purchase it to expand your slow ballad repertoire!

The "Air on the G String" is an adaptation by August Wilhelmj of Johann Sebastian Bach’s "Air". The air is usually played slowly and freely, and features an intertwining harmony and melody.

The original piece is part of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, written for his patron Prince Leopold of Anhalt sometime between the years 1717 and 1723.

The title comes from violinist Wilhelmj’s late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major and transposing the melody down an octave, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.
