Suite No.3 in D major is scored for three trumpets, timpani and oboes, with the usual strings and continuo. The opening French Ouverture, with its characteristic solemn introduction and following fugue is followed by an Air, played by strings and continuo, a movement later popularized in an arrangement by the nineteenth century violinist August Wilhemj as Air on G string which in its original form it is certainly not. The pair of Gavottes are played in alternation, followed by a Bourrée and a lively Gigue, the most frequent conclusion to any set of dances.
