This week on Between the Keys, The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler concludes a two part survey of the musical Scherzo. While a scherzo is defined as "a vigorous, light or playful composition, typically comprising a movement in a symphony or sonata," the genre, in fact, embraces a wide range of moods.
This second of two episodes titled "Serious Scherzo!" features music by Gottschalk, Alkan, Busoni, Saint-Saëns, Ives, Hailstork, Chabrier and Liszt. Performers include Jack Gibbons, Ivan Davis, Wolf Harden, Akane Sakai and Lilya Zilberstein, Arthur Rubinstein and Vladimir Horowitz
