Scherzo in G major, Op 4
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Scherzo in G major, Op 4 (1869), was published by Breitkopf und Härtel following the success achieved with the Polish Dances, Op 3. It is a piece full of youthful exuberance and a good example of Scharwenka’s ability to compose effectively for his own virtuoso display without sacrificing true musical content. The pianist is given no respite as the piece hurries on, ending with a spectacular flurry of broken octaves.
