Description: The works from which these suites and sonatas are chosen are relatively close in time (1705 for the suites and 1713) but represent two different styles. The former are in the French multi-movement suite style and stick to dance forms with a few character pieces thrown in for seasoning. The sonatas come with recognition of the Italian style and were fodder for the then-ongoing controversy over the merits of the two national styles. Eco dell’Anima.
