  • The theme is a gavotte from François Charlemagne Lefebvre's ballet Noces de Gamache (Don Quichotte), which also seems to have been included in a ballet called Achille et Deidamie (not the 1735 work by Campra, though possibly the 1802 parody). Another set of variations on this theme is in Dalvimare's 4 Favorite Airs Arranged for the Harp (No.1).
