Title: Menuet and Rigaudon, from the opera Almira

Composer: G. F. Handel, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Viola and Cello

Printout: 2 pages

Note: Written when Handel was 19 years old, Almira set the composer on the path to success. These dances are part of a ballet sequence in the opera. The wistful g minor minuet and invigorating B-flat rigaudon make an ideal pairing and are suitable for many purposes.
