Rigaudon composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695). Arranged by Richard Meyer. Orchestra. Masterworks; SmartMusic; String Orchestra. String Explorer. Baroque; Masterwork Arrangement. Grade 1.5. Conductor Score & Parts. 72 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.22306).
The rigaudon is a popular French dance of the 17th century that has become a favorite of composers in all time periods. This rigaudon-one of Purcell's most famous melodies-has been arranged for first- and second-year orchestras as their first encounter with the key of C major. The melody is constantly passed from instrument to instrument, training students to listen for the "tune," making them much better ensemble players. A perfect concert opener! This title is available in SmartMusic.
