Johann Philip Kirnberger

Johann was born in Saalfeld, Germany on April 24th, 1721. He was a music theorist, composer, and musician. He also was a student of Johann Sebastian Bach. Johann was a part of the Baroque period. He was thought of as an old-fashioned composer. Kirnberger lived in Poland for ten years and worked for numerous noblemen. In 1758, he became the music director for princess Anna Amalia of Prussia. Johann Philip Kirnberger died July 27, 1783.

Menuett

My favorite part about the song is the pattern of the notes. The song has lots of slurs which makes it interesting to listen to.

Relection

I enjoyed learning about Johann Philip Kirnberger. I found it interesting that he worked for various noblemen and women. At first when I heard about this solo project I was extremely nervous for it. As I worked through it I realized that it wasn't as hard as I thought. The more I played Menuett the more I started to like it.
