“Jazzy Capriccio” plays pranks with rhythm, meter, and harmony in a jazzy, and sometimes more “classical,” Style. This Grade II-III piece is great fun to play. It delights performers and listeners by perking up their ears with unexpected yet pleasing rhythmic, metric and harmonic changes. The two molto accelerando sections, measures 38-40 and 43-45, begin at about M.M. = 50 and reach M.M. = 120 at each grand pause.
"Jazzy Capriccio" engages all the instruments in playing dominant parts and background parts, thus challenging players equally. Even though "Jazzy Capriccio" was composed for young players, it is accessible by more experienced bands. The scoring, which features ample doubling, accommodates smaller bands and groups with uneven instrumentation.
Program "Jazzy Capriccio" to enliven and enrich any concert venue.
