Scherzo for String Quartet

This is the fourth movement of my still unfinished String Quartet #3. It was initially going to be the third movement until I decided on a five movement layout. It's pretty straightforward, in A minor, and in 5/8. It's actually the oldest part of the quartet in terms of when the idea began, something I'd played with on the piano for years, not realizing until I started on the quartet that this idea was more suited to strings. And now, it's the first movement finished, as my previously posted first movement is no longer finished -- I'm currently in the process of extending it to balance out the fifth (which is furthest from completion; movements 2 and 3 are close to being done).

Not much more to say about this, other than I really like it. Y'all really need a break from reading after my last couple of posts, anyway:

(Next up: Two more episodes of the Perenepsis series. I hope that doesn't scare anyone away.)
