Gavotte

This piece is the second in a Suite of Antique Dances. The intent is to have dancers perform as the music plays. The gavotte is a dance in 4/4 of moderate tempo where the major sections start on beat 3. This gives the dancers a two beat intro. It appears to be a square dance, doe si doe, swing your partner, pinwheels, etc. in slow motion except there are hops.

Hi Lawrence,

I'm honored that you wish to analyze and cite the Boson piece. Please go ahead. 

I'm not sure if the structure is like John Adams, but the ostinati, consonant quartal harmonies, and some rhythmic aspects are, and the angular theme probably. Have fun! I look forward to seeing the result.

Hi Lawrence,

I just listened to your 'Etude In G'. I really liked being taken on such an authentic Baroque journey. It sounds a little like the music that was used in the early Warcraft computer games. They were always notable for their very high quality Baroque style soundtracks. Have you every had ambitions in that area?

All the best,

Alex :)
