Menuet in C Major

Menuet de Sigr. Bach from Notenbuch für Wolfgang - Minuet



This Menuet de Sigr. Bach by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach appears in Leopold Mozart's Notenbuch für Wolfgang.

It is very similar to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Minuet in E flat Major, H 171, W 116.1.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Menuet in C Major features a simple A-A-B-B musical form :
  • Mm. 1-8 : Part A (played twice) in the key of C Major
  • Mm. 9-16 : Part B (played twice) starts in the dominant key of G Major, modulating back to C Major in measure 11
Please note that the dynamics and phrasing indications given in this score are editorial and should thus be regarded as mere suggestions to the player.

Also, the lower notes in measures 3 to 8 and in measure 15 of the right-hand part are editorial.

Furthermore, we suggest adding cadential trills to measures 8 and 15.

This score contains suggestions for performing these trills in accordance with the performance practice of the late Baroque period.

Duration : 00:57
