Scars and Scrapes Forever, the comic novelty conceived and composed by Kenneth Laufer for Piccolo and PianoLaufer is best known for his satirical piano playing in both comedy clubs and concert halls - much of it, of course, his own composition. Laufer's best-known work, Scars and Scrapes Forever for piccolo and piano, is a brilliant example of his compositional language; satirical, charming, and rich in conflicting musical ideas that are nevertheless gracefully combined. Scars and Scrapes Forever is based off of John Philip Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, though it mixes in several other quotations.
