In this work I transformed and combined three mountain gavottes (a French country dance marked by the raising rather than the sliding of feet) from the Brittany region of France. The result honors the absolute simplicity of the originals, which were in 12/8. The new meter is 21/8=9+12.
Instrumentation: 2 violins.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Advanced student/professional.
- Influenced by: Folk music
