Beethoven's Minuet in G is also extremely famous, no? Is there some way we can disambiguate this piece? Its tricky since its spurious so its not really appropriate to include a (Bach) in parenthesis. Maybe Minuet in G major (BWV Anh. 114) as that allows for that? Perhaps somehow linking or even redirecting it to the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach? DavidRF (talk) 20:42, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree, I stumbled onto this page looking for Beethoven's; however, I'm not an expert at Wikipedia editing so I don't know how to disambiguate--but I support it. --Coching (talk) 05:25, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

There is another Minuet in G in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena, namely Minuet_in_G_major,_(BWV_Anh._116). This sounds as if it might also be by Petzold, but it's hard to find information about it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:50, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

The copy of the notebook I have (ABRSM 1997 ed Richard Jones) lists it as anon while giving the 114 as Petzold. Until people make a definite attribution, we'll have to leave it unidentified.--Peter cohen (talk) 20:33, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Clarify, please-[edit]

The article says "The Minuet in G major is found in the 1725 Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach, where it appears with its companion piece, Minuet in G minor, as a pair to be performed da capo."

Is the "companion piece" Anh 115? The wiki article "da capo" doesn't specify exactly what the term means in this context. Does it mean that the two pieces are to be repeated in their entirety, in the order 114, 115, 114, 115? Would that entirety include the internal repeats in each piece? Or does it mean that 114 is played, then 115, then 114 again? And then what of internal repeats? What reference shows that the pieces are paired, and exactly how? Thanks for any light that can be shed on this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JohnOFL (talkcontribs) 22:16, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

"da capo" means "from the beginning". How you interpret that is up to you. sugarfish (talk) 07:11, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
