Music History of Minuet in G


The second Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach was started in 1725. It opened with two harpsichord suites composed and written down by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Anna Magdalena Bach likely received the notebook from her husband in the autumn of 1725.  It was a present for either her birthday or their wedding anniversary.

Nos. 3 to 11 in the notebook are keyboard pieces written by Anna Magdalena. No. 3 is a Minuet in F major by an unknown composer (likely not Bach).  This was adopted as No. 113 in the second annex.  This is the annex of doubtful compositions in the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (BWV).

Petzold’s Minuets in G major and G minor BWV are the next two entries in the notebook. These pieces may have been brought back from Dresden by Johann Sebastian when he visited this city in September 1725.

Bach likely intended the simple binary dances contained in Anna Magdalena’s notebooks, including the Minuets entered without composer indication, as teaching material, likely rather for his younger children than for his wife.[12]
