The Three Great Pianist Composers Vol.2 - Frederick Chopin

CC9028CD
£14.99

Details

Chopin’s four Scherzi form a major contribution to the literature of the piano. Beethoven before him had already used the word (‘Scherzo’means ‘joke’ in Italian) in the sense of the symphonic ‘Scherzo and Trio’ but Chopin created the single-movement form and made it his own. With Chopin the scherzo came vigorously to life and although it cannot be thought of as a joke in the frivolous sense, a great deal of the music is fast and brilliant.
