Scherzo in G minor, Op 49 No 2
The Italian composer Enrico Bossi (1861-1925) had something of a dual musical personality. He wrote operas and many other forms of music, but he was also a concert organist on the international circuit who died at sea returning from an American tour. Coincidentally, the phrase which establishes itself at the very beginning of his Scherzo has a wave-like motion whose energy gives this piece its impetus as it builds up from quiet flutes to full organ and back in a musical language and texture not too distant from that of Mendelssohn.
