hu·mor·esque (hym-rsk) n
A whimsical or fanciful composition.
[German Humoreske, from Humor, humor, from English humor.]
Humoresque (or Humoreske) is a genre of romantic music characterized by pieces with fanciful humor in the sense of mood rather than wit. Notable examples of the humoresque style are Schumann's Humoreske in B-flat major (Op. 20, 1839), and Dvořák's set of eight Humoresques (Op. 101, 1894), of which No. 7 in G-flat major is well known.
