Scherzo-romantique, RO233 Op 73
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This is the thoroughly European Gottschalk sending an elegant salon confection spinning through the keys of A flat, G flat and D major in a waltz-scherzo more reminiscent of the worlds of Moszkowski and Rubinstein, which were to come, than that of Chopin, which had passed. There’s the characteristic exploitation of the top of the keyboard but, throughout, as in all Gottschalk’s music, one is aware of how supremely well the music is laid out for the hand.
