In music, a suite is an ordered set of instrumental or orchestral pieces normally performed in a concert setting rather than as accompaniment; they may be extracts from a ballet (Nutcracker Suite), incidental music to a play (L'Arlésienne Suites), opera, film (Lieutenant Kije Suite) or video game or they may be entirely original movements (Holberg Suite, The Planets).
