Impromptu is a short instrumental piece with an improvisatory feel
October 26th, 2018
Impromptu is a short instrumental piece reminiscent of improvisation. Originally, it was just a free-form composition, but later it became a musical genre. Schubert composed eight Impromptus. This piece begins with an accelerated tempo that mirrors the sometimes frenzied pace of our busy schedules. Do we not see ourselves in the fast-moving, energetic flow? You will hear a charming melody in the middle of this piece, but then the music returns to the vivacious tempo of the beginning and sweeps the listener into its bustling beauty. As you listen, pay special attention to the structure of the piece.
