Caprice

for solo violin 

VIDEO

ABOUT

Caprice was composed in response to a request to include a world premiere performance for a Diploma recital. The work has since found its way into the heart of many young violinists. The seed of inspiration was a close up photo on a postcard of a small bird in flight and is beautifully demonstrated in Madeleine Mitchell’s video.
