Composition -
Air Gracieux
By Anthony St. Pierre October 2013
 
A T B
 
 
One of a few of St. Pierre's quite freely adapted selections from Rameau's Pièces de clavecin en concert available through the ARS, this one from the second concert is particularly lyrical. It is one of the less technically demanding of these adaptations. Duration: 4:10

Performers on the accompanying recording are Janos Ungvary (A), Scott Paterson (T), and the composer (B).  
-- Anthony St. Pierre
 
Pieces in this set include:  Loure, Rondeau vif, Rondeau gracieux, Tambourin, and Air gracieux
 
A beautiful, slow and lush trio with a heavy French flavor, this free adaptation has lots of opportunity to practice your flattement, mordents, and overall musical sensitivity. Lots of staccato markings in the slow moving melodic underlay ensure an intimate feel when observed.
-- Glen Shannon
