Tune of the Day: Minuet in G major

 Traditionally attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach

This famous piece was traditionally attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, as it appears in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena, a notebook which Bach offered to his wife Anna Magdalena in 1725 and which was to be filled with favorite selections of the members of the Bach family.

However, recent research has concluded that this minuet (sometimes referred to as “BWV Anhang 114”) was probably composed by Christian Petzold, a German composer and organist contemporary with Bach.

As you will see, the score contains some suggestions for realizing ornaments in accordance with Baroque performance practice; when first learning the piece, you should ignore them.
