Trout Scherzo is an arrangement by Stephen Primatic of the third movement from Schubert’s well-known piano quintet. Lively and joyful, the piece demands great dynamic control from all members of the ensemble. It also features a fast 3/4 tempo which is felt in “one.” 

This arrangement is for a large percussion ensemble of 13 players but can also be performed as a 7-player mallet choir without timpani or unpitched percussion.

With expert orchestrations and nuance, Primatic brings this early Romantic-era classic to the percussion world.

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
