Video excerpt method :


"Carnet de bal en Gascogne" is a collection of 95 scores accompanied by a CD on which the melodies are played to the boha. 

The author has chosen a repertoire of ballroom dances, usually played or sung in Gascony and especially by the bohaires.

You will find scottishs, mazurkas, circus circles and other waltzes, but also the more specific dances of Gascony such as the rondeau and the congo.

To facilitate the discovery and use of this book, all the melodies are classified according to five different criteria: type of dances - popularity - technical difficulty (for a bohemian) - musical mode - melody from the public domain or composition.

The objective of the sound file is to propose an intelligible interpretation allowing to easily pick up the melody while avoiding flat and characterless music.
