Today we will listen to Minuet in G. Several people composed a Minuet (a slow, stately ballroom dance for two in 3/4 time, popular especially in the 18th century) in the key of G including Beethoven, Mozart and Bach.
How are the same? How are they different?
JS Bach’s version
The Bach version also was “acquired” for a popular song in the 1960s
Rowlf from the Muppets plays the Beethoven Minuet
So – never say to your teacher that “I already played that” – you never know which version s/he has in mind!
