About the album
Smekkleysa presents four of Johann Sebastian Bach's Orchestral Suites. Although Bach has plenty of models of orchestral suites from which to draw inspiration, it was not like him to content himself unthinkingly in the footsteps of other composers, and his orchestral suites outshine all other comparable works.
Bach always had to rethink everything from scratch, and indeed so with each new work. As with the Brandenburg Concertos the orchestral suites are very different from each other.
