“Ludwig van Beethoven’s Minuet in G major, WoO 10, No. 2 is a composition originally written for orchestra, but was lost and only an arrangement for piano could be found.” (source)
Prodigies students may remember this song from Performance Chapter 3 where we played the notes Do & Sol. We’ve graduated to the melody and a fully realized harmonic structure. Minuet in G is written in a 3/4 time signature and has been transposed to the key of C for range. It features dotted eighth/sixteenth note rhythms and neighboring chromatic tones. There are two distinct themes, each 8 measures long. Play the first theme twice, then move on to the second theme.
