Scherzo in F

Author Comments

Features counterpoint and piano only at a high pace; at 120 BPM. Probably from the Baroque Period I guess, if I composed it then. Enjoy.


I have to disagree with Malthiest here. If you've ever heard Glenn Gould take on the the Goldberg Variations then you'd know that this is Bachian type counter-point and fugue. Also, the music of Lizst and Beethoven are just as fast. It's a scherzo anyways, supposed to be sort of a joke. The fast flirries of notes could be the "joke" here. Good work ClassicalFreak.

I'm going to assume that you wrote this on compute

because it sounds impossible.

However, it's still fantastically light, but appropriatl dramatic. So 10/10

A little short, but totally enjoyable

Obviously, a little bit too short, but if you were to expand on this piece it would be fantastic. Like the reviewer below said, great use of counterpoint, and I agree with you that the most important thing is a good ear!

I really enjoy piano music like this, keep it up!
I can tell you must have been zero-bombed. I hate it when people vote good music down.... I'm 5-ing this one for sure.

Very nice.

Really great use of counterpoint. I only wish I had the knowledge of species counterpoint to pull something like this off. I feel damn sorry for anyone who has to play this, they must have like 4 hands. :P

Great work, mate. Keep it up.

Although, on a historical note, scherzos weren't really around in the baroque days, methinks. Regardless, it's great.

ClassicalFreak responds:

Thanks =D. I think people can make do with three, though. And as for knowledge of species counterpoint... I don't really have a lot of that either. What you need is just a very good listening ear, in my opinion.

Hmm... historical booboo I made then, though it's a little too short to be a sonata/ Thanks for the review, once again.
