Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, Premier Intermède (string trio)


Title: Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, Comédie-Ballet (1670), Premier Intermède

Composer: Jean Baptiste Lully, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2/Viola; Cello

Printout: 8 pages

Note: A collaboration between Lully and Moliere, The Bourgois Gentleman is like a play/ballet/opera hybrid. The title character, determined to educate himself as befitting his new wealth, hires a music-master and a dance-master to instruct him in their respective arts. The music in this interlude is heard when the assistants to the dance-master demonstrate the various dances popular in France at the time.
