Here I'd like to present you a Scherzo for 2 Oboes, Clarinet, French Horn and Bassoom. Originally composed for a stringquartett. It starts somewhat like a wild horse ride but has some interesting counterpoint parts and a most lovely middle part. I hope you like it... Listen to it with full volume!
Bravo for this invigorating Scherzo you've presented here for us!
I'm glad you moved the file away from Esnips. So many of us have trouble with that site, with all its pop-ups and entrapments. It seems to have become a bit of a mission on our part, to steer people away from that questionable site.
This is such a sure-footed, well-realized composition. I really enjoy the galloping 6/8 rhythm used throughout, and the well-considered changes of pace you've used throughout.
You asked us to listen at full volume - The one draw back to that is the distortion which happens at the peaks are emphasized when played back very loudly. I'm afraid your rendering has gone into the red here and there - I think you should try re-rendering this at a slightly lower volume.
Thanks to moving this from ESnips to a more viable site (ever since a traumatic and painful vasectomy many years ago, I avoid anything and everything containing the word "snips" ).
Other than the slight distortion at high volume (on my system, anyway), this was a delight to listen to. Definitely a fun, well-constructed piece; I enjoy almost anything in a quick triple meter, and you handled that feel quite admirably -- along with that changeup on the middle, as you pointed out.
Really nice piece, really nice handling of these woodwinds! Thanks for sharing this!
