Jean-Baptiste Lully: Gavotte

Gavotte is a folk French dance, which became popular at Louis XIV’s Court. It has become an important part of baller programs & ordinary entertainments.  I present you, Esteemed Readers, a version by Jean-Baptiste Lully for wind instruments. It is called “Gavotte in Rondeau”.  Here I should notice Tom Jobim to play the flute very well. He also wrote the wind Bossa Nova scores. Enjoy listening!

Vive le Roy!
