Scherzo

Symphony No. 7 – Op. 92 by Beethoven – was deemed by Beethoven himself to be one of his best works. It was immediately quite popular and movements from it were often requested at encore. Frances has nicely captured the orchestral feel of this 3rd movement with the lively Scherzo scored in 3/4 time; however, the Spirito pulse dances along in “one.” Voicings throughout move between bells and handchimes with table mallets, thumb damps, and shakes adding energy and texture.
