Johann Sebastian Bach composed the six harpsichord suites, later known as the "French Suites" while he lived in Cothen, Germany, between 1722 and 1725. They were written "in the French style" according to biographer J. N. Forkel, and were considered "less academic," or less technically demanding, than the "English Suites." The movements are Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte, Bourree, Loure, and Gigue.
