Gavotte in C Major, Op. 12, No. 2

Gavot - From A Set of Progressive Lessons for the Harpsichord or the Piano Forte, Op. 12



This lively Gavotte in C Major, Op. 12, No. 2 by Samuel Arnold is part of A Set of Progressive Lessons for the Harpsichord or the Piano Forte, expressly calculated for the use of beginners, Op. 12.

This set of progressive lessons is divided into two books.

This particular Gavotte in C Major is part of Lesson II in Book 1.

Its original title is Gavot.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, trills and appoggiaturas) in accordance with the performance practice of the Classical period.

In particular, we consider the appoggiaturas in measures 1, 5, 9 and 13 as short appogiaturas.

They are to be played ON the beat, very rapidly, so that the main note retains almost all of its value.

Duration : 01:13
