Suite No. 1 for unaccompanied cello.

The suites are in six movements each, and have the following structure and order of movements.

1.Prelude
2.Allemande
3.Courante
4.Sarabande
5.Galanteries -- (Minuets for Suites 1 and 2, Bourrées for 3 and 4, Gavottes for 5 and 6)
6.Gigue

Scholars believe that Bach intended the works to be considered as a systematically conceived cycle, rather than an arbitrary series of pieces: Compared to Bach's other suite collections, the cello suites are the most consistent in order of their movements. In addition, to achieve a symmetrical design and go beyond the traditional layout, Bach inserted intermezzo or galanterie movements in the form of pairs between the Sarabande and the Gigue.
