Gavotte, from Arianna in Creta (violin duo)
Title: Gavotte, from the opera Arianna in Creta
Composer: G. F. Handel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2
Printout: 2 page
Note: This gavotte, played at the correct tempo for dancing, is a sprightly allegro, but when given a more stately pace it is march-like and can be used as a wedding processional or recessional. It is popular with wedding clients who like the traditional baroque marches but want something a little different.
