Tune of the Day: Minuet in G minor

Traditionally attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach

This piece appears, together with the more famous Minuet in G major, 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. Both pieces have traditionally been attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach until the 1970s, when the Minuet in G major was identified as a piece from a harpsichord suite by Dresden organist Christian Petzold.
