Lully Gavotte

The gavotte originated as a french folk dance, eventually cristalizing as a court dance with a distinctive half bar upbeat. It became popular in the court of Louis XIV, where Jean Baptiste Lully was the leading court composer. This particular gavotte has been arranged for orchestra, piano and violin, piano and cello, and trumpet and organ, and has become a popular study piece due to its simple yet expressive melody.
