Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Minuet in E flat Major, H 171 features a simple A-A-B-B musical form :
- Mm. 1-8 : Part A (played twice) in the key of E flat Major
- Mm. 9-16 : Part B (played twice) starts in the dominant key of B flat Major, modulating back to E flat Major in measure 11
Also, the lower thirds in measures 3 to 6 and in measure 15 are editorial.
