Grade 4 – Humoreske Piano Sheet Music

Humoresque is a piano piece composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1890. The last of his Humoresques for orchestra and piano, it was originally written as an entr’acte for the play The Two Widows (a Czech comedy). After that performance, he added accompaniment; this version became very popular.   It is very versatile, as it works well both with orchestra and for piano solo.

There are several arrangements of the piece, including for cello with piano accompaniment. The arrangement by Leopold Stokowski adds a choir of cellos for the last section.

It has also been arranged/parodied by various musicians, most famously by Spike Jones .

The piece is in A-flat major. It begins with an expansive melody, marked by its descending phrase and a brief pause before the next set of notes that are played staccato. The second theme takes up this pattern but ends on B-flat major, then works back to A flat for another melody/cadence. There is then a descending scale (similar to the first theme but starting on G sharp) that leads into another interlude, this time very short and interspersed with scales leading up to the climax of the work which starts at bar 90. The rest of the piece returns to the opening melody, this time somewhat altered.
