The Scher­zo for Wind Ensem­ble is a Scher­zo in the sense that Beethoven used the term; it is in fast triple meter and its char­ac­ter is sar­don­ic. The Scher­zo, writ­ten 3/4 through out, orga­nizes itself into super meters vary­ing in length, effec­tive­ly cre­at­ing a mul­ti-meter feel­ing through­out. The work achieves its sar­don­ic char­ac­ter through the employ­ment of hock­ets, quick turns of melody, and fast mov­ing harmonies.
