Minuetto II in F minor, H 196/2

Minuetto II W 113/4



This Minuetto II in F minor, H 196/2 by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was composed in 1765 and first published in 1766.

It is part of the album Kurze und leichte Klavierstücke, H 193-203, W 113, which contains 11 pieces destined to young piano students.

In this Minuetto II in F minor, CPE Bach has written out the repeats in full rather than indicating them by repeat signs.

Hence the pianist should not add or modify anything.

This is how the tradition of the performer adding embellishments to the music, so typical of the Baroque period, came to an end in the Classical period.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for playing the ornaments (here : trilled turns) in accordance with Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's own principles.

The trilled turn resembles a short trill with a termination.

Please note also that in this score, the fingerings are authentic and were specified by CPE Bach himself.

Duration : 01:12
