PARTI DE SARATOGA. AKA - "2ème Partie de Saratoga." French-Canadian, Reel or Quadrille (4/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The second figure of a quadrille set. "The Saratoga Quadrilles" were published in New York in 1852 by C. G. Christman, while the "Saratoga Polka Quadrilles" were issued later in that same decade. The "Saratoga Lancers" of later dance manuals may or may not refer to the "Saratoga Quadrilles." The first strain of "Parti de Saratoga" is cognate with the first strain of "William Irwin's Quickstep," but the second parts are different.
