Tuneful and attractive piece of music, very suitable for the elementary player who is beginning to develop some skills. Students will enjoy playing it as a flute duet* and/or with the piano accompaniment.
Gavotte had its origins in southeastern France as a peasant’s ‘kissing dance’ before becoming popular with the aristocracy in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The included flute duet* is the special feature of this edition, allowing the work to be performed by 2 equal flutes with or without a piano. Flute 1 has the complete flute solo, while the accompaniment is compressed into a single line for flute 2.
The downloadable Mp3 performance track is played at slow tempo to aid the student with practice and learning. The Accompaniment track has the faster tempo.
