    Gigue (Johann Anton Logy)

    Johann Anton Logy, Count of Losinthal (German: Johann Anton Losy von Losinthal); also known as Jan Antonín Losy and Comte d'Logy (Losi or Lozi), (c. 1650 – 22 August 1721) was a Bohemian aristocrat, Baroque lute player and composer from Prague. His lute works combine the French style brisé with a more Italian cantabile style. He was probably the most significant lutenist-composer in Bohemia at the height of the lute's popularity there.

    Gigue is a lively piece of music in the style of a dance, typically of the Renaissance or baroque period, and usually in compound time. This piece is selected as one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) level 2 repertoire.
