Polonaise in G minor, BWV Anhang 123 -- Urtext

From the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach

This lyrical Polonaise in G minor, BWV Anhang 123 is the 17th entry in Anna Magdalena Bach's Notebook.

Johann Sebastian Bach gave this notebook to his wife Anna Magdalena in 1725.

Over the years, the notebook was filled with favorite selections of the members of the Bach family.

This score is an Urtext based on the original manuscripts available.

This Polonaise BWV Anhang 123 was probably composed ca 1733 and was entered by C.P.E. Bach himself in Anna Magdalena Bach's notebook.

It has a simple A-A-B-A musical form :
  • Measures 1-8 : Phrase A (played twice) in the main key of G minor, made up mainly of parallel sixths in the right hand
  • Measures 9-18 : Phrase B in the relative major key of B flat Major
  • Measures 1-8 : Phrase A repeated
In accordance with Baroque performance practice, remember that unslurred quarter and eighth notes should be played slightly detached, such as in measures 7 or 15-18 in the left hand.

Duration : 02:04
