Capriol Suite

£20.00

The Capriol Suite is a set of dances in the renaissance style, and is very loosely based on tunes found in Arbeau’s Orchestographie of 1588.

The suite consists of six movements: Basse-Danse , is a lively dance for older folk followed by a stately Pavane; a delicate, yet lively Tordion is followed by Bransles (pronounced ‘Brawl’, a fast country dance which works its way into a frenzy, continuously building in speed and excitement. This is followed by Pieds-en-l’air , perhaps the Suite’s most popular movement, with its beautifully serene lines before the final movement, Matachins , an exhilarating sword dance with its driving rhythm, culminating in violent dissonances bringing the piece to a spirited close.
