Part of a rare programmatic work by Beethoven, the "Scherzo" from his sixth symphony is meant to evoke a festive gathering of peasants. In the original symphony, this movement does not have a clear ending, giving away to an attacca into the next. Anthony McDonald has employed the last five measures from the scherzo to Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 to serve as the ending in this edition. Joyous and quick, this piece will be a delight for audiences and players alike. For intermediate to advanced players.
