The Scherzo No. 4 in E major, Op. 54 is different from the other scherzos by Chopin. Close to the fairytale sphere, though devoid of elves and goblins, it is brighter than the others, written with a finer, lighter pen, though it too occasionally reminds us of the existence of shadows and frights. Two categories of expression form this pianistic poem, which delights us with the immaculate beauty of its sound: the expression of play and the expression of love. The central section of the E major Scherzo (lento, then sostenuto) is filled with thoughtful music, gazing at distant horizons, sounding like the expression of pure yet ardent love.
