The "folk" described in the overture are people from the "exotic" countries and cities of Europe, including the Swiss, Turks, and Muscovites. The reason for leaving out "normal" places, like Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and England, is that they get covered as a matter of course in the typical orchestral (or instrumental) suite containing the standard national dances--the allemand, courante, sarabande, and gigue. These are basically what you get in the other two "overtures" on this disc. During the Baroque period, the terms "overture," "suite," "partita," and even "symphony" were more or less interchangeable, so don't let the terminology fool you. It's just entertaining music, well performed and recorded. --David Hurwitz
