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!
