Some of Bach's keyboard compositions during his time in Cöthen were not written for the court, including the so-called French Suites, the first five of which appear in the Little Notebook for Anna Magdalena. Written in 1722, the Suites open the book of instructional material. Here, and in other manuscripts, the works are entitled, "Suites pour le Clavessin" (Suites for the Cembalo, or Harpsichord). The term "French" was applied to them much later, perhaps to distinguish them from the "English" Suites, which are more musically extended, stylized dance suites.
Each of the six French Suites contains the four dance movements that Bach made standard for the genre -- Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, and Gigue. To these, Bach added two to four movements between the Sarabande and Gigue. Because the different movements are associated with different European countries, the Suites have an "international" character. All movements of a particular suite are in the same key, although minor-key movements often end in the major.
Although originally written for Keyboard, I created a flute part to accompany an Acoustic Piano providing a somewhat 'Pavane' Style.
