It usually means it is the Trio section from a Minuet and Trio form. And, although the beginning of the score you link to is not marked "Minuet", it is in 3/4 and in the style of a Minuet. Originally the Minuet was a kind of dance, with Minuet also describing the associated 3/4 dance music form. Later it became common to combine this form with a Trio ...

The quickest solution would be to find as many different recordings of this piece that you can find, to listen to the cadenzas that different performers play, and to construct a written cadenza that feels similar in style. That is always what I have done as a solo singer. Try to find recordings that say that they were made "on period instruments" or "in ...

I added a musescore transcription for God is our ...

For example, I wouldn't expect a cadenza in a Mozart horn concerto to include a bunch of pedal notes or lip glissandi or other techniques that were not commonly ...

To answer broadly, studying traditional scale fingerings and technical sequences (like Hanon) will give you an intuitive sense of what fingerings to use in most situations. I'm not really sure why you would expect the reverse of right hand fingerings to work for the left hand -- the keyboard itself is not symmetrical, so different fingering patterns are ...

Right, the first two measures are bad because the Bb screws with the otherwise obvious pattern (standard fingering but crossing under 4 on the way down to buy the extra note). Several editions list the first two measures as: 5_43 2132 1231 2341 | 4_32 1432 1234 1234 I personally think this is over-complicated. I hate the scrunch from 1 to 4 across the ...
