Orchestral, Instrumental, and Keyboard Music
This chapter examines the orchestral, instrumental, and keyboard music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The distinction between orchestral and chamber music was not very clear during Bach's time. The public face of Bach as an orchestral composer can be seen in his four orchestral suits and in secular cantatas he composed during the 1730s. However, most of these compositions were intended for the same kind of music-making as the chamber works.
