Abstract

This essay continues the documentation of formal functions (after Caplin) in named menuets from the eighteenth century, as begun in parts 1-4 of this series. In this essay, the focus is on menuets written by other composers during the middle decade of Mozart’s life, 1771-1780. The repertoire includes music by Carl and Anton Stamitz, Franz Joseph Haydn, Luigi Boccherini, and several others, as well as menuets in collections or compilations intended for performance, dancing, or pedagogy.
