It's high time I contributed some music and here offer one of my favorite works of the French Baroque. This is a theme and six variations (termed doubles) for harpsichord. The theme is titled Gavotte. The work is in A minor and has little harmonic interest and a simple melody, but I think Rameau does wonders with so little. The form for the Gavotte and all variations is: A (rep A) B (rep B). Timings: (length 7'40"). Gavotte (0:00) double 1 (1:45) double 2 (2:51) double 3 (3:58) double 4 (4:57) double 5 (5:52) double 6 (6:44) Details Music Edition: from the Rameau Album, published by Edito Musica Budapest. This edition retains the actual ornamentation, unlike the two realized versions available at IMSLP. Piano: Baldwin SF-10 (7') with lid on half-stick Mics: Shure KSM 141 matched pair on cardioid setting and in ORTF configuration at 63" height and 5' distance A-D Converter: Digidesign Mbox2 Recording SW: ProTools LE (on my HP Pavilion laptop) Other: I have the treble down a bit and the bass pumped a bit with EQ and added some reverb. It feels good to break the ice again. Rameau - Nouvelles Suites, "Gavotte et Six Doubles"
