This Suite, like the Cello Concerto and the Piano Trio, came from one of Gaspar Cassadó's most prolific periods, in the mid-1920s.

The Suite consists of three dance movements:

The first movement quotes Zoltán Kodály's Sonata for Solo Cello, and the famous flute solo from Maurice Ravel's ballet Daphnis et Chloé.

This Suite was popularized by the great cellist János Starker.
