Humoresque

[hyoo-muh-resk or, often, yoo-]
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 the one in G-flat major is well known.
