Minuet in G

Recommended Posts

This minuet flirts with modulating but remains in G. Section A is 8 bars and section B is 16 bars which is quite typical of short keyboard minuets. I expanded the transition back to the main theme using only a G chord that rises using triplets, im not quite sure if it works.

Triplets work fine. Sometimes I feel I cannot make out the two lines, but checking the score every consonance with direct motion is imperfect, so I must be wrong.


Thank you for commenting. Descending and ascending 3rds, 6ths and 10ths sound good in direct motion but must be used sparingly, perhaps 4 in a row is too many and spoil the independance of the lines.
