The 1725 Notebook of Anna Magdalena Bach is chiefly famous for pieces such as the two minuets in G major and G minor (Nos. 4 and 5 in the present collection) and the Aria di Giovannini. These three, indeed the majority of the pieces, were not composed by J. S. Bach but by other, often fairly unknown musicians. Anna Magdalena Bach compiled the Notebook for her own domestic use.
