Menuet in G Major


This Menuet in G Major by Jean-François Dandrieu is an easy dance movement from the French Baroque period.

It has a simple A-A-B-B musical form :
  • Measures 1-16 : Phrase A starting in the main key of G Major and modulating to the dominant key of D Major in measure 14
  • Measures 17-32 : Phrase B entirely in G Major
For your convenience, this score contains suggestions for the correct realization of the trills in accordance with Baroque performance practice.

In particular, trills begin ON the beat, on the upper auxiliary note.

Also, the chords at the end of phrases may be rapidly broken, which yields a charming effect very typical of Baroque keyboard instruments.

Duration : 01:56
