“Capriccio” by Lucas Foss

Learn This One!

Looking for a short contemporary work for your next recital?  Check out “Capriccio” by American composer Lucas Foss.  This piece has it all: showy technical passages, and a beautiful middle section that slows down enough for you to show off your gorgeous sound.   It’s a seven minute piece that sounds American, is clearly 20th century, but not too dissonant, and with its steady rhythmic energy, a real hit with audiences.  It’s a  piece that fits nicely on any well planned recital program.  Check it out!
