This minuet is from the second Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach, (J. S. Bach's second wife.)  It is a collection of pieces by Bach and other composers.  This piece is mostly known as Minuet No. 2 because that is how it is titled in the Suzuki violin book.  Originally for keyboard, it is presented here as a duet for cello and piano.  The opening arpeggio figure is a good string crossing exercise for beginner cellists.  Practice slowly at first, being sure to make good contact with each string before moving to the next.
