TIM WATTS (b. 1979)
Two Scherzos (2004-05)
for solo piano | 8'30 | World Premiere 2004–05 | Dedicated to Matthew Schellhorn
  • SummaryOpen or Close
    One of his first world premieres, Matthew Schellhorn performed Tim Watts's Two Scherzos after meeting the composer during his studies in Cambridge.
  • Programme noteOpen or Close
    Written for Matthew Schellhorn, both scherzos relish the interplay of fiendish virtuosity with moments of lyrical calm. The ghost of Chopin (his 2nd Scherzo, in particular) haunts the piano writing and some of the material of the first scherzo.
