The Anna Magdalena Bach Notebook is the source of many wonderful compositions. In fact the “notebook” is really two notebooks that composer Johann Sebastian Bach presented to his second wife, Anna Magdalena. The two notebooks are dated 1722 and 1725. The Anna Magdalena Notebook commonly refers to the 1725 manuscript. The 1722 notebook contains pieces composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, including many of the French Suites. The 1725 notebook is a set of pieces written by Bach and other composers of the era. This collection provides an unequaled view into the domestic music of the era and the musical tastes of the Johann Sebastian Bach family.
Minuet in D Minor is likely from the second notebook.
