Detailed Description

Gounod's Menuet composed by Charles Francois Gounod (1818-1893). For Piano. Duet or Duo; Masterworks; Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands). Piece for the Piano Duet event with the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Festivals Bulletin 2008-2009-2010. Masterwork; Romantic. Intermediate. Sheet. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.881157).

Here is a classical minuet form, but with a rich, romantic era texture. There are a lot of dynamic contrasts, a nice mixture of staccato and legato, and chordal as well as polyphonic textures. Written in ¾ time. The key is G minor, but there are excursions into B-flat major and other neighboring keys. The melodic duties are nicely divided between the pianists. This piece provides a beautiful recital performance opportunity as well as an enjoyable introduction into the minuet dance form.
