Celibrated Minuet arr. piano/keyboard


This improver version has the letter names of the notes written in the noteheads and features the only first minuet of Boccherini's Minuet and Trio from his String Quintet Opus 11 No.5. It is intended to be a bridging piece encouraging instrument players to progress from beginner to improver level. (quickly!) In this two part arrangement for piano/keyboard the musical texture has been simplified into melody and accompaniment. Fingering is clearly marked in the score along with other score detail and the ornaments have been written out in full, in an ossia staff, to assist players. I would suggest that they are perhaps omitted in the early stages of leaning the piece. This movement requires a lightness of touch and above all a very consistent approach which will be a challenge to players inexperienced in performing music from this era. A tempo of 100 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is recommended and to encourage a dry acoustic minimal use of the sustaining pedal.
