Containing his Air on a G string, Bach composed four orchestral suites, including his most famous offering, the Orchestral Suite No. Bach wrote a total of four orchestral suites, the best-known of these being the third. It was written, along with the others, during the last period of his life in Leipzig, around So, the numbering for the orchestral suites isn't entirely accurate. And, it seems, Bach's definition of 'orchestral' suites is pretty loose too.
The four orchestral suites called ouvertures by their author , BWV — are four suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. The name ouverture refers only in part to the opening movement in the style of the French overture , in which a majestic opening section in relatively slow dotted-note rhythm in duple meter is followed by a fast fugal section, then rounded off with a short recapitulation of the opening music. More broadly, the term was used in Baroque Germany for a suite of dance-pieces in French Baroque style preceded by such an ouverture. This genre was extremely popular in Germany during Bach's day, and he showed far less interest in it than was usual: Robin Stowell writes that " Telemann 's surviving examples [represent] only a fraction of those he is known to have written";  Christoph Graupner left 85 ; and Johann Friedrich Fasch left almost Bach did write several other ouverture suites for solo instruments, notably the Cello Suite no. The two keyboard works are among the few Bach published, and he prepared the lute suite for a "Monsieur Schouster," presumably for a fee, so all three may attest to the form's popularity. Scholars believe that Bach did not conceive of the four orchestral suites as a set in the way he conceived of the Brandenburg Concertos , since the sources are various, as detailed below.
This was not the sort of music he normally wrote; it is lighter fare than his normally more rigorous, sacred or fugal fare. Suites for orchestra were also called overtures, and they were an all-purpose form of entertainment, featuring some pretensions of French culture, which was the most sought-after affectation among the royals of Europe in the eighteenth century. The genre was a collection of excerpts from French ballets and operas, and the arrangement of the form was an overture the beginning of a stage work followed by a collection of dances. Garden parties, trade fairs, and every other sort of celebration were good spots for these pieces. Bach wrote only four of these works; it was not the sort of thing he did naturally.
