The young Tchaikovsky's first decade living in Moscow beginning in 1866 was marked by his rise to relative notoriety in various musical and social circles. A preoccupation with characteristic writing for solo instruments marks Tchaikovsky’s concertante works, and he solicited advice from virtuosos regularly. Composed in early 1877, the vibrant and joyous Waltz-Scherzo features attractive violin writing and memorable melodies. Chronologically, this work immediately precedes Tchaikovsky's monumental Concerto in D and is often regarded as a preparatory exercise for the more substantial concerto. For this reason, the Waltz-Scherzo has been recorded surprisingly frequently, and makes a lovely addition to recital programs.
