Telemann published these pieces in 1737 with the title Galanterie-Fugen und kleine Stücke fürs Clavier. [Gallant-fugues and little pieces for the Clavier]. Each fugue is followed by three or four brief dance movements in the same (or a related) key and they are intended to be played like a suite. The volume also contains six little suites particularly suitable for teaching. The present volume is based on a copy of the first edition in the Conservatoire Royale de Musique in Brussels.
