‘Caprice. (F.-Ital.-L.?) Fr. caprice. Ital. capriccio, a whim. Perhaps from Ital. capra, a goat; so that capriccio might mean a frisk like a goat’; see Caper. ¶ Not certain; for capriccio also means a sudden chill, and capricciare is to shiver.’ Skeat – Etymological Dictionary 1882
Exploring the caprice. Peter Sheppard Skærved, leads an exploration of the capricious violin, stretching back to the first virtuoso solo works written for the instrument in the early 1600s, through to possibilities emerging today. These journey will include extraordinary pieces by Roger Redgate, and will, of course, go by way of Paganini and Locatelli. Come along and join the conversation, whether you are a composer, a player, or just intrigued!
This event is free and open to all.
