Title: Orchestration of Mendelssohn's Scherzo for string quartett op. 81,2
Post by: gprengel on September 17, 2021, 02:00:24 PM
Hello, recently I discovered a wonderful Scherzo fragment for string quartett by Mendelssohn from his last year in 1847 (published posthum as op. 81,2) As it is in a-minor I think I could use this as a Scherzo for my project of Mendelssohn's 6th unfinished symphony in C Major and so I orchestrated it in the last 5 days (actually nights ;-) - I like it a lot ... Would you say it could be used for a symphony Scherzo?
