Reviews - What do customers think about Fantasticke Scherzo, Op. 25 - Study score?
An underrated composer Jan 11, 2007
Josef Suk (1874-1935) was Dvorák's pupil and son-in-law, and the teacher of Martinu among others. He was not a particularly prolific composer but most of his works are of high quality, and the Fantasticke Scherzo is no exception. This is a totally delectable ten-minute work in a light-hearted mood, with propulsive rhythms and a gorgeous recurring theme in the violoncelli.
This Serenissima score is a reprint of the Breitkopf & Härtel edition of around 1905. The engraving is very clear and the score well laid out with good spacing between the staves. Print quality is fine and this score is a pleasure to use.
There is an excellent recording by Charles Mackerras and the Czech Philharmonic which should be readily available.
