Bach's Orchestral Suites. Four works, BWV1066-9, modelled on the type of overture-suite widely culltivated in Germany as entertainment music durring the second quarter of the 18th century. This instrumental genre, also known as OUVERTURE, probably developed from suites of excerpts from French operas and ballets, which became popular in arrangements for lute, melody instruments, and harpsichord at the end of the 17th century. Its opening overture was followed by a number of character dances, mostly of the variety known then as galanteries: gavotte, minuet, bourree, and lighter movements not in a specific dance rhythm. German court composers wrote such suites to sattisfy their employers' French tastes. Fasch, Graupner, and Telemann were among the most prolific composers in the genre. Telemann's 135 surviving examples representing only a fraction of those he is known to have written. The Suite in G minor BWV1070, sometimes attributed to Bach, is a spurious work.
