Hi, everybody !

I'm currently working on the Menuet II from the French suite no. 1 in D minor by Bach. At bar 3, there is an ornament in the right hand. It does not look like a trill. How shall I play it ?

I use Henle 's edition, but you can see the same ornaments on this edition :

Those ornaments don't appear the table exposed in the preface of my edition, visible at this adress in the first reply :

Has anyone played this ? Can anybody help ? Thank you.

Play A-Bb-C.  I'd put A on the main beat. 

The name of it escapes me at the moment.

One well known example of this is Bach's Erbarme Dich from the St. Matthew Passion.

Hi, beethoven_fan !

I have done some research on the Internet. It is called 'Schleifer' in German, slide in English. Quantum is right about the execution : you should play the A on the beat.
