Menuet in C Major, Hob. IX:3, No. 9

Minuet Hoboken IX:3, No. 9



This 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
Please note that Haydn did not provide any dynamics for this menuet.

Duration : 01:12
