Gavotte and Variations

This work, originally meant for harpsichord, is one of Jean Philippe Rameau's better known pieces. It consists of a simple binary dance in A minor, with sober harmonies and a ornated melody. The variations play on the original material, adding streams of sixteenth notes that outline the harmony, re-stating the music in different forms, and re working numerous textural elements.
