No.253 Gavotte (Gossec)


François-Joseph Gossec (1734-1829)

When Ken-G was a little boy, he had a difficulty of mastering 'staccato' with violin. There is not such difficulty with synthesizer though you must still create the sound itself mechanically.

The score below is the one downloaded from web site, but I copied the performance of Mischa Elman by ears.
