Gavotte in A Major, Volume 2, No. 16

Der Anschlag (Doppelvorschlag) - Double Appoggiaturas



This lively work Gavotte in A Major [Der Anschlag (Doppelvorschlag)] is the sixteenth piece in Volume 2 of Daniel Gottlob Türk's Handstücke für angehende Klavierspieler.

This second volume was first published in 1795.

This piece Gavotte is set in the key of A Major.

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

Namely, appoggiaturas are played ON the beat, taking up one half of the main note's value, although in measure 2 we do recommend playing the double appoggiatura a little faster.

Please note also that the sign // in measures 2, 4 and 12 is used by Türk to indicate that the note should be played with a lifting touch in order to round-off the end of the phrase.

This sign should NOT be confused with the ornament // (trill) of the Baroque English virginalists.

Duration : 00:40
