The minuet is usually the third movement of a symphony or sonata.
A minuet, sometimes spelled menuet, was a social dance of French origin for two persons, usually in 3/4 time, with a strong downbeat. The minuet become more and more stylis…ed during the 18th century, being incorporated into Baroque Suites (such as those by Bach, Handel, Telemann) and later into the Classical symphony and sonata (Mozart, Haydn, early Beethoven). Minuet and trio form in classical symphonies, string quartets and sonatas consists of two minuets with a da capo (back the beginning) at the end of the second minuet in order to finish with the first minuet and give the form an overall ABA or ternary structure. Both minuets are in rounded binary form, with two repeated sections, A and B, where A returns briefly at the end of the B section, hence 'rounded.' |: A :||: B (A) :||: C :||: D (C) :|| A | B (A)| The trio is so called because originally the second minuet would be played by a smaller ensemble, possibly of as few as three players. It is generally reduced to three structure lines, and is lighter and sweeter than the minuet sections. At the turn of the 18th/19th centuries the minuet gave way to the more rumbustious scherzo (as introduced by Beethoven).
