This was not the sort of music he normally wrote; it is lighter fare than his normally more rigorous, sacred or fugal fare. Suites for orchestra were also called overtures, and they were an all-purpose form of entertainment, featuring some pretensions of French culture, which was the most sought-after affectation among the royals of Europe in the eighteenth century.
The genre was a collection of excerpts from French ballets and operas, and the arrangement of the form was an overture the beginning of a stage work followed by a collection of dances. Garden parties, trade fairs, and every other sort of celebration were good spots for these pieces. Bach wrote only four of these works; it was not the sort of thing he did naturally.
However, the local groups of players in Leipzig, called Collegium Musicumrequired music; he had been appointed its director inon top of his normal duties at the Thomas School.
His political position in Leipzig was usually tenuous because he was frequently petitioning the city council for a better wage, BWV 1068 - Capella Istropolitana - The Best Of The teaching and conducting conditions, and more money for music in general.
For this he probably needed to commit to acts of good faith, and music such this Watershed - Amelia Curran - Watershed (File, Album) Suite in D major would have been exactly what the city council and citizens enjoyed. For someone who stood back from the world of light, entertainment music, Bach was good at writing it. This suite uses a rich blend of timbre, featuring oboes, trumpets, timpani, strings, and continuo.
