Gavotte en Rondeau (1720)

from Violin Partita No. 3, BWV 1006

J. S. Bach (1685 – 1750)

Alto or Tenor Saxophone Solo with piano

Gavotte en Rondeau by J.S. Bach arranged for Alto or Tenor Saxophone solo with piano. This gavotte is a movement from the Partita #3 for Solo Violin by Johann Sebastian Bach. A gavotte is a lively French dance. In the Baroque period, the gavotte was a popular dance form. They were often included as movements in suites. Gavotte en Rondeau is one of the most famous pieces written by JS Bach. It has been recorded dozens of times and used in many film and TV scores. A recording of Gavotte en Rondeau was included on the Voyager Golden Record, attached to the Voyager spacecraft (launched in 1977), as a sample of the culture of Earth.

This arrangement is for Alto or Tenor Saxophone Solo with piano. It is transposed to the key of E flat (the original is in the key of E). As the gavotte repeats several times, an optional alternate ending for a shorter and less technically demanding performance is indicated at the end of the third statement of the rondeau.
