J. S. Bach's four Orchestral Suites (BWV 1066–1069) are accompanied by a bonus performance from 1956 of Handel's Concerto Grosso in A Minor, Op. 6/4.

"These live performances from 1954 … will likely be welcomed by [Otto] Klemperer devotees…. They feature a clearly audible harpsichord and what sounds like a reduced orchestra."—Fanfare

"Bach wrote only four known orchestral suites, but he wrote them skillfully. Each of them is festive and fun. The secret ingredient in his overtures was to inject a bit of the Italian influence. Italian music was much more critical to Bach's style than French music ever was, particularly in his absorption of Vivaldi's concerto style, which brought out a speedy, visceral quality. Thus the lofty tones of the French sound never gets turgid or boring. Among the four orchestral suites, the fourth has some of the sweetest, loveliest qualities."—All Music Guide
