Rigaudon à quatre
Rigaudon à quatre, Gaudrau, 1712,
Philomelle, La Coste, 1703
score & voices - printed version
b/w, 13 pages: 5 scores, 6 for 3-voices
Here I present - in result of an intensive historical research including preserved operas, collections and songbooks dating form the 17th to the 18th century - scores and notations taken from more then hundred if the most wonderful stage dances of the baroque period.
Each sheet consists of score and individual voices of a baroque stage dance taken from the original print and rendered in modern notation with G-clefs and F-clefs. The middle voices are shown with both clefs.
The lines of score and voices are consistent with the original choreography and numerals indicate the page of the Feuillet notation. In addition repetitions are often written-out. This improves the communication between dancers and musicians vice versa.
According to the historical performance praxis many notation systems which correspond to the choreography sheets start with an upbeat. (e.g. Sarabande, Gigue, Chaconne, Gavotte and other dances)
An email order for continuously noted scores is possible on request.
