Other version : Capriccio for Violin and Piano


Capriccio for violin and organ develops a lively and dancing theme in an abridged sonata form. The exposition opens out through developping thematic derivations of a same joyful theme on the violin. A contrasting sensual second theme with soft percussive accompaniment on the organ leads to a varied recapitulation of both ideas before the brilliant coda.
