Gavotte in F Major
Gavotte en Rondo - Les MoutonsThis Gavotte in F Major by Giovanni Battista Martini was originally composed for organ or harpsichord.
It is the fifth of five movements in Martini's Sonata No. 12 in F minor, B 4.1.9.
This sonata itself is part of Martini's Sonate d'intavolatura per l'organo e il cembalo, first published in Amsterdam in 1742.
This Gavotte in F Major is written in rondo form, whereby there is a refrain which is repeated after every couplet (or episode).
This score is an arrangement for cello with piano accompaniment.
The cello part is appropriate for Grade 4 cello students.
When playing this Gavotte by Martini, both the cellist and the pianist should pay attention to the most interesting two-part counterpoint between the cello and the piano's right-hand part.
