Program Notes on Air en menuet in A minor, HWV 462 by Handel :

This Air en menuet, HWV 462 was composed by George Frideric Handel around the years 1724-1726.

It thus belongs to the Baroque period.

The title Air en menuet can be translated to Air in the style of a minuet.

This Air en menuet has a simple A-A-B-B musical form :
  • Measures 1-8 : Phrase A (played twice) starts the main key of A minor and modulates to the relative key of C Major in measure 5
  • Measures 9-16 : Phrase B (played twice) begins in C Major and modulates back to the main key of A minor in measure 13
Please note that in this score, we suggest adding a cadential trill to measure 15 as was customarily done during the Baroque period.

For your convenience, the editor has included in this score a suggested realization for this cadential trill in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

In particular, trills begin ON the beat, on the upper auxiliary note. More on less repercussions may be played depending on the player's ability.

Handel's Air en menuet, HWV 462 was originally composed for the keyboard in the key of D minor.

This score is a transcription for guitar duo, set in the key of A minor.

The Guitar I part is appropriate for beginner guitarists.
