Furno Partimento #1 – Gigue

Giovanni Furno wrote 10 partimenti for beginners. They can be found at Dr. Robert Gjerdingen’s website.

Here is one of my realizations of the first partimento. The right hand melody is in the style of a gigue in 6/8 rhythm. I’ve taken the liberty to shorten the cadence at the end to fit it into an even number of bars.
