The French dance suite has been one of composers’ favorite genres for centuries. The variety and contrasts inherent to this form – from sensuous sarabands to jaunty gigues – makes them a perfect platform to highlight individual style. From one of the first published female composers, Élizabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, and Johann Sebastian Bach to modernists like Camille Saint-Saëns and György Ligeti, we explore the simple charm of dance music.
