Suite de Ballet

Vaughan Williams, R

"Ralph Vaughan Williams was a 20th century English composer, best known for his collections and arrangements of English folk songs. While not one of his better known works, Suite De Ballet for Flute and Piano, composed around 1924, is a prime example of this. Each of the four movements is influenced by or taken from English folk songs and dances.

The first movement, Improvisation, is slow and lyrical, and meant to sound as if the flute is improvising the ethereal melody. Humoresque is a short, quick and lively movement, which is characteristic of the humoresque genre.

Although originating in France, the gavotte was also a very popular dance in England. Gavotte, as is common for any gavotte, begins in the middle of a bar, and then continues with an easy dance feel.

The final movement, Passepied, is the longest and most exciting movement. However, unlike traditional passepied dances, this movement is notated in 2/4, instead of 3/8 or 6/8." - Shey Dillon, 2013
