Masterclass description

This is the most antique piece that we have from Brahms, who wrote it at the age of 18. Its name is Scherzo (Joke), but actually, it's not, or not always, cause it's written in E flat, a very unusual key for Piano composition in general, and it contains long phrases, alternating pleasant atmosphere with sustained sound; and finally, it's about 10 minutes long, which makes it even more interesting, and challenging... The main topics are Tempo, short and rhythmic use of pedals, and alternating Sostenuto with Cantabile. Professor Peter Frankl, Assistant Yevheniya Lysohor.
