Yes, Czerny: 

Yes!! I find the Scehrzo of his Piano Sonata no.1 abosultely amazing! And it's in my favourite key!! Really I just treated Czerny as a boring teacher since I've played so many of his studies when young, but I never know he was such an amazing composer! His piano works are amazing, and he's for sure a composer in his own right, rather than Beethoven's pupil and Liszt's teacher!

Favourites in that they fire me up one way or another! The tempestuous and threatening - and the jubilant.

Shostakovitch's 10th Symphony Scherzo - not alone with this one. 


The jubilant - the Allegro Molto Vivace from Tchaikovsky's Symphony 6. 


(A redering by Boult - far from the most lively. Look up Karajan's)

Play both LOUD.
