The individual movements that comprise these suites include overtures, fanfares, instrumental arias, and dances.

enjoyable look at a favorite music piece

I really enjoy this series of lectures on classical music, and especially enjoyed this one since it is a favorite piece for me to listen to. It reminds me of a longer version of what I get at the symphony when the conductor suggests things to look for in the upcoming piece. This was enjoyable but also was very educational commentary. I appreciate the author/narrator's lecture voice as well.
