Description

Program

E. Grieg — Holberg Suite

The Suite beings with an overture, moves through a rondeau, sarabande, two bourrees, a polonaise and a minuet, and ends with a badinerie.

J. S. Bach — Orchestral Suite # 2 in B minor

The second “play it again” piece is Bach’s Orchestra Suite # 2 in B minor; this piece incorporates dance themes as well. Bach wrote “stylized dances” which were intended for listening not dancing, and its eight movements use traditional French dances as well.

G. F. Handel – Water Music Suite in G Major

Written for King George I in 1717 and performed from a barge in the Thames River. Here again, dance movements are foremost, the sarabande, rigaudon, minuet and bourree.
