Belle (Gavotte) (Ferrer)

Belle is a typical example of the French guitar salon music at the end of the nineteenth century. It that time the Gavotte was no longer a stylised movement of a baroque suite, it just was the peasant dance that it used to be.

That’s clearly audible, the binary measure gives the music something rustic. An Introduction brings you in the mood for the Gavotte that consists of a repeated lead theme and some bridging segments. The Finale provides the (last) opportunity for some virtuosity. A pleasant and entertaining piece that is worth the effort.
