    Default J.S.Bach - Air For String G variations

    hello,
    i am interested in this particular piece of music. i understand it's part of Bachs orchestral suites, namely the suite nr.4. i have three versions of this piece of music but they all differ (of course only slightly but they still do) in the instruments used and development.
    now i have one of these from a compilation cd the others two from an orchestral suites Nu.1-4 cds. however, from these three variations, i like only the one from the compilation and so i would like to acquire the full suite cd, which i was and still am unable to this very moment.
    here they are:

    Air For String G #1 (Suite No.3 in D, BWV 1068: Air - Stuttgarter Kamme Rochester/Karl Munchinger):

    Air For String G #2 (Air from Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D):
    http://files-upload.com/268247/06-17...iteNo.3inD.mp3

    Air For String G #3 (Suite Nr.3 D-dur, BWV1068: Air - Sigiswald Kuijken; La Petite Bande):
    http://files-upload.com/268266/2-02S...WV1068_Air.mp3

    btw you have to wait like 25 seconds before that download can start. bit of a bore i know but apparently neccessary with sites like these.

    i want that first one. anyone have any idead where i can find the full suit? i wasnt able to find it yet.
    thanks,
    magnus

    First, welcome.

    Concerning Bach orchestral suite, I suggest you to look CD-review web sites and Amazon.com to listen to exceprts of CDs.

    reviews sites

    On Amazon, here is the CDs including all suites: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw...0&Go.y=0&Go=Go
    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?
