Minuet, Johann Krieger (1651-1735) – performed by Mark Zobel
The minuet was a dance in triple meter, one of the traditional Baroque suite of dances, popular in the 17th century. By Krieger’s time, the suite was principally a musical form, with the dancing long since abandoned at parties…except for the minuet. Even in the early 18th century, people would still get up to dance the minuet when it came around.
