Capriccio

Duration: 7 Minutes, 30 Seconds

Capriccio is a rhythmically driven piece in three sections based on two simple melodic ideas and the harmonic interval of a third. The ideas appear in various combinations to create an effect of playful dramaticism and a musical language generally reminiscent of early twentieth century tonality.

It was commissioned by the Keywinds Trio for performances during their 2008 – 2009 season.
