Air on the G String was the very first work written by Bach around 1720 and recorded by the Russian cellist Aleksandr Verzhbilovich and an unknown pianist. It was written for his patron Prince Leopold.

The title comes from violinist August 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, Wilhelm was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.

      Erg mooi, zeker als jij het speelt Laughing

      Volgens Wikipedia is dit zo bijzonder aan het stuk. Maakt het dat moeilijk of juist makkelijker ?

      Later, a spurious story was put about that the melody was always intended to be played on the G string alone
