Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and over three hundred cantatas of which around two hundred survive. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.

Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognized as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.

The Ouverture Suite in G Minor (BWV 822), is a 6 movement Suite published soley in the New Bach Edition (NBA) dated 1743. Bach's other early Ouverture was unknown to the editors of the Bach-Gesellschaft Ausgabe (BGA). In the NBA it is labelled as "a probable arrangement of a foreign composition". It's style is more confident than that of BWV 820, and it incorporates more Italian features alongside French ones. Several movements, including the opening dotted passage, contain as convincing an imitation of orchestral style as in any of Handel's early suites. Yet, like BWV 820, the suite bears the hallmarks of the young Bach and seems no more (perhaps somewhat less) likely to be a transcription.
