[anti-rclick]Recently, a student has started working on this work. So I took some time to revisit the piece. French Suites (as well as German Suites) are sets of Baroque dances, combination of of fast and slow tempi and different characters. Allemande is a German dance in usually 4/4 time with a moderate tempo. It is the first dance of this set no.5 of the French Suites (and it is usually the first of the suites as well).
