Matteo Carcassi (1792 – 16 January 1853) was a famous Italian guitarist and composer.

Carcassi was born in Florence, Italy, and first studied the piano, but learned guitar when still a child. He quickly gained a reputation as a virtuoso concert guitarist.

He moved to Germany in 1810, gaining almost immediate success. In 1815, he was living in Paris, earning his living as a teacher of both the piano and the guitar. On a concert tour in Germany in 1819, he met his friend Antoine Meissonnier for the first time. Also a famous guitarist, Meissonnier published many of Carcassi’s works in his Paris publishing house. For Meissonnier he also arranged a number of popular songs for guitar that were originally written for piano, including works by Théodore Labarre and Loïsa Puget.

From 1820 on, Carcassi spent the majority of his time in Paris. In 1823, he performed an extremely successful series of concerts in London that earned him great fame, both as a performing artist and as a teacher. However, in Paris, a long time passed before his talents were truly recognized, partly because of the presence of Ferdinando Carulli.

Carcassi was in Germany again during autumn 1824. Afterwards he performed in London, where his reputation now gave him access to more prestigious concert halls. Finally he returned to Paris. For several years, he made concert trips from here to the most important cultural towns of Europe, including London. After a short return to performing in 1836, he quit his concert practice around 1840 and died in Paris in 1853.

Carcassi wrote a method for guitar (op. 59), first published with Schott in Mainz, in 1836. It is still valuable, relevant and interesting. His most famous works are collected in his 25 Etudes op. 60. In these, he managed to blend technical skills and brilliant romantic music. This is the reason his music is still played by so many classical guitarists today.

Fernando Sor was a Spanish classical guitarist and composer.

His ballet score Cendrillon (Cinderella) received over one hundred performances.

Sor’s contemporaries considered him to be the best guitarist in the world, and his works for guitar have been widely played and reprinted since his death. Although modern classical guitar players usually do, Sor rarely used his annular finger or nails when playing.

It’s April 6th 2015 and it’s a beautiful day here. This classical guitar arrangement of Bach’s “Air on the G String” that I am playing here is based off of the most excellent performance of Rick Graham on youtube.

Air on the G String is August Wilhelmj’s arrangement of the second movement in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068.

The original orchestral suite was generally believed to have been written by Bach for his patron Prince Leopold of Anhalt some time between the years 1717 and 1723. However, the oldest surviving score is later, dating from Bach’s time in Leipzig. Current thinking is that the suite may well have been written in that city for performance by the collegium musicum.

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, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.

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

Free tab is included in the link below for you to print out, so you can follow along at your own pace. On the tab sheet you will see numbers above the first measure of each line indicating the measure number. I recommend writing in the measure number for every measure on the sheet music / tab so you can quickly locate the measure you are working on. In this video you will see measure numbers on-screen so you can easily locate the measure being discussed in the tab by skipping ahead or back in the video.

Work on the measures you need the most work on first. Some measures are more difficult than others. Carefully observe all fingerings as given in the video. You may want to print out the tab and while watching the video, make notes on the score of P, I, M, and A for each note and 1, 2, 3, 4 for the left hand, so that you can practice the proper fingerings each time. Use a metronome and practice slowly each note by note to get it right before trying to play faster. Eventually you will naturally build up your speed.

Right Hand fingering abbreviations:
P=thumb
i=index finger
m=middle finger
a=third finger (ring finger)

Allegro indicates that the movement of this composition is rapid. But if it is to be played well the Allegro by Giuliani must be practiced very slowly at first. Use a metronome set at a very slow speed! And practice, practice, practice!
