Piano Concerto No.2 in G Minor Op 22 2nd movement Allegro Scherzando Saint-Saens Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This 2nd movement of Saint-Saens's Piano Concerto in G minor is one of the jolliest and most tuneful piano concerto movements in the repertoire. It also requires an extremely skilled virtuoso pianist to play it! Saint-Saens wrote it in 1868, commissioned by Anton Rubenstein, the greatest virtuoso pianist of that time.

It opens with an exciting 6/8 tonic-dominant bounce on the timpani, shortly followed by the first theme, a jolly lilting melody on the piano, which is then taken up by the strings. Somewhat later, the 2nd theme comes in on the cellos, yet another catchy tune, which again is quickly snatched up by the piano.
