This is the string quartet score for Rigaudon, thefourth dance in Maurice Ravel’s popular piano suite Le Tombeau de Couperin and one of the most popular. (Parts are available separately.)  Ravel liked LeTombeau so much that he laterorchestrated four of the dances, ending with Rigaudon.  Arranged by accomplished violinist Ted Lucas, who has decades of string quartetexperience, this lively dance is a perfect concert-opener or an ideal closer asan encore. This is the only piece in LeTombeau where Ravel did notindicate a metronome tempo, so it can be played at any spritely tempo you arecomfortable with. Take a listen to part of it. And be on thelookout for the next dance from this suite, Forlane, comingsoon.
