Play robustly. At two-and-a-half minutes long, this lively piece makes for a snappy concert piece and is ideal for a quick encore. It also works well at slower tempos.

In 1725, two Native Americans captured in French-held Louisiana Territory, were exhibited at a fair in Paris. They performed three dances, representing Peace, War and Victory: one had the full regalia of a chief, the other was dressed as a simple warrior.

One observer was Jean-Philippe Rameau, who wrote a harpsichord piece a few years later, called Les Sauvages. The piece was published in the Nouvelles Suites of 1728, and re-used in a ballet scene of Les Indes Galantes, as the Dance of the Peace Pipe. One of the most popular pieces of French music throughout the 18th century, it was played every year during the free concert given in Paris on the King’s Feast Day up to the Revolution.
