“Beethoven's scherzos are a transformation of the stately classical minuet into a perky, fleeting, vivacious dance=form which must be played with humor and exaggeration. Players should observe carefully all staccatos and dynamic markings, in particular the sforzandos, a Beethoven “trademark”. Select a tempo which is as fast as clarity will permit.” – Martha Rearick (published 1982)
