Scherzo from Op. 4 is a charming presto for string orchestra. It is based on the third movement of Sibelius's String Quartet B-flat major, on which the composer added a double bass part. The premiere of the string orchestra version took place on 17 February 1894 in Turku, composer conducting. Reviews were enthusiastic: “Sibelius's music appeared in its most beautiful splendor and
instrumental brilliance in the Presto movement, where the singing motive was carried out with charm and beauty - -, cascades of diligently and brilliantly composed scherzo-figures and melodies [give a] thoroughly delightful and frisky, lively character.”
