minuet is pronounced as: me-new-at
I've always thought of minuet as sad song... but I was wrong.
I had my flute lesson today and had to play this minuet piece, I played the tune sadly and heavily, and was corrected by my flute teacher that minuet is a 3/4 dance... light and joyous! Like dragon flies touching the waters...
So I took out my classical collection, copied all the minuets and will be listening to minuets only for this week! :)
Here's a demonstration of flute on Bach's Minuet played by 500 flutist!
What a scene!
