Scherzos

 

It was Beethoven who gave the Scherzo a place in the musical history books. Beethoven's Scherzos were conceived as parts of larger design, and they contain, on the whole, enough good-humoured energy to justify their label on etymologocal grounds (Scherzo is the Italian word for joke). Chopin's scherzos, on the other hand, are self-contained works, more notable for their altering intensity and lyricism than for any spirit of playfulness.
