This energetic and spooky scherzo is a great piece for teaching the key of G minor to a young orchestra. It features a melody based on a scale in broken thirds with short fast bow strokes. All the instruments get the melody and the double basses get lots of interesting material. Some shifting to 3rd position for first violin and bass is included as well as 2nd position for cello. Perfect for developing trills, dynamics, and bow distribution, this piece also includes several poco rits and fermatas for teaching tempo changes.
