Two French Dances is a wonderful introduction to French Baroque music. The Rigaudon was composed by Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1769) and the Gavotte by Espirit-Philippe Rameau (1698-1762). This arrangement by Bob Phillips presents the two dances in first position, easily playable by all players. Beginning string players will find them well within grasp both technically and musically.
