Gavotte, from The Princess of Navarre (string quartet)


Title: Gavotte, from the Comedie-ballet The Princess of Navarre

Composer: J. P. Rameau, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello

Printout: 4 pages

Note: Gig musicians know that by the end of a long wedding season the standard baroque repertoire can do with a bit of perking up. This gavotte from the final dance sequence of the comedie-ballet The Princess of Navarre (a comedie-ballet was a hybrid form mixing elements of stage play, opera, and ballet) is a delightful piece not often heard because comedie-ballets are rarely performed today.
