Minuet Composition (D group for Tuesday 14th / B group for Wednesday 15th)
D GROUP I AM SORRY I FORGOT TO SAY IT NEEDS TO BE IN 3/4 – please adapt what you have written to put it in 3/4
1) Write a period in a major key following the instructions on writing and CHARACTERFUL basic idea. Please write for string quartet, starting with the melody and chords and then filling in a simple texture.
Note that the consequent phrase needs to end ii-V-I for the next bit to work
2) Rewrite your period but in the consequent phrase the ii-V-I should be in the dominant key and the ii should be preceded by a secondary dominant (i.e. V of ii)
