Tune of the Day: Gavotte by Grieg

from the Holberg Suite, transcribed for solo flute

This gavotte is the third movement of the Holberg Suite, Op. 40, a suite of five movements for solo piano based on eighteenth-century dance forms. Edvard Grieg composed it in 1884 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish-Norwegian humanist playwright Ludvig Holberg.
