Minuet in E flat Major, H 171

Menuet - Wq 116.1 - Kast 53



This Minuet in E flat Major, H 171, Wq 116.1 by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was first published in 1762.

It appears in Leopold Mozart's Notenbuch für Wolfgang with the title Menuet de Sigr. Bach, in the key of C Major (please refer to Menuet in C Major).

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
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 thirds in measures 3 to 6 and in measure 15 are editorial.

Furthermore, we suggest adding cadential trills to measures 7 and 15.

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

Duration : 00:57
