Composer's Notes

A Fast Stomp is a very energetic and unrelenting Scherzo and Trio. It started as a study for my orchestral piece Scherzoid and is almost a scaled down, compacted overview of that piece. The title refers to an episode around two minutes in, where the violin plays a pizzicato passage while the piano plays thick, stamping chords in extreme registers. The piece ends with an intense coda comprising long melodic lines in the violin and cello accompanied by resonant bell chords in the piano.
Mark-Anthony Turnage, 2005
