If there ever was a worn out old warhorse, this is this one :-). But old warhorses may have their charm and, given the huge number of existing uploads, one more or one less can't do much harm.

When relearning the Menuet gothique, I swiched on the metronome and realized that I was much faster than indicated on the score. In fact, I was playing a "Scherzo gothique" an not a menuet, which was a gracious and somewhat ceremonious dance with a moderate movement, beloved by the royal Courts of the 17th-18th. So, I reduced the throttle and tried to play it in minuet mood.
