Much of the study of improvisation follows a simple idea: imitate the masters. Today’s improvisation is an attempt at an improvisation like a Vierne Scherzo. I like the use of scherzos and other fast paced pieces during communion processions because I don’t think of them as always being reflective; but more often, they should be joyous, maybe even in a rambunctious way. It’s a solid improvisation, though I certainly could have use another 5 minutes to the paltry 2 or so that I had, thus the abrupt ending. Though,when one is given lemons, make lemon pie (that’s what my Mom says after all!).
UPDATE: I just realized that this post is identical to another post recently. I have no idea how they got mixed up, but I like this improvisation, so I’m happy to share it twice!
