Impromptu Sheet Music

The term impromptu is used in music to designate a free-form solo instrumental composition with the character of an improvisation. In this sense the impromptu is closely related to the fantaisie. Given that the idea of an unpremeditated inspiration strike materializing in the form of a piece touches the very core of Romantic artistic thought, the designation of impromptu was quickly adopted by many romantic composers.
