Tune of the Day: Two Menuets by J.S. Bach

from Cello Suite No. 1 in G major

The fifth movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 in G major is actually made up of two minuets, the first one in the key of G major and the second one in the key of G minor. This second minuet is one of only twelve movements in all six cello suites that don't contain chords. At the end of the movement, Menuet I is played again, this time without repeats.
