Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Following their acclaimed recording of the Brandenburg Concertos, Sigiswald Kuijken leads his ensemble La Petite Bande in Bach's four Orchestral Suites. Kuijken has chosen to use an unusually small ensemble. Alongside the harpsichord, the continuo group consists of two violones, a bass instrument significantly larger than the baroque cello and which produces a more resonant sound due to its larger body and thicker strings.

Bach: The Orchestral Suites. Petite Bande, La Orchestra, Sigiswald Kuijken Conductor. CD: 1 Tracks: 24 Length: 1:19:06. CD 1. Johann Sebastian Bach Composer. Orchestral Suite N. in C, BWV1066 Work.

Following the Brandenburg Concertos, Sigiswald Kuijken now presents this new recording of the four Orchestral Suites of Johann Sebastian Bach with his ensemble La Petite Bande. Orchestral suites in the French style, in which the actual 'overture' is always followed by a series of dances or characteristic movements, were quite well known during Bach's time at courts throughout Europe. The splendour of the Versailles court of Louis XIV and XV was imitated everywhere, and music was of great importance in this respect

La Petite Bande has recorded a spectacular rendition of Bach's four orchestral suites, certainly some of the most spectacular instrumental music of the Baroque repertoire. La Petite Bande director, Sigiswald Kuijken, has written a very informative essay explaining the history of these pieces. Unfortunately, more is unknown than known. Kuijken speculates that the works were conceived for string orchestra and the wind parts were added at a later date. He also notes that sections of the 4th Suite were reused in the opening chorus of the Christmas Cantata, BWV 110. Kuijken also remarks.
