This Is Newly Printed Music
(1809–1847) was a child
prodigy whose short life produced some of the greatest early Romantic music. Mendelssohn wrote the incidental music in 1842, and this scherzo
was performed between the first and second acts.
Samuel P Warren (1841–1915), though born in Montreal, made his mark on the organ world
in New York City. He was a founder of the American Guild of Organists, a respected performer and teacher, and extraordinary transcriptionist.
Warren’s note at the bottom of page 7 is a mark of the master! Moderately difficult.
