Menuet in C Major, Hob. IX:3, No. 9
Minuet Hoboken IX:3, No. 9This Menuet in C Major is the ninth of twelve menuets in Haydn's 12 Menuetti, Hob. IX:3.
The player should pay careful attention to the ornaments in this menuet :
- Half-mordents, also known as Haydn ornaments because Haydn uses them so often, are quick turns which should be played with an incisive snap typical of Baroque performance practice
- Appoggiaturas should be played ON the beat of the main note, lasting two-thirds of its value. They should be slightly accented and slurred into the main note
- Trills begin on the upper auxiliary note, ON the beat
