The work was written shortly after a trip the composer took to England, where several of his chamber works had been performed. Composed between June to Octoberthe Capriccio was the result czpriccio a commission from pianist Otakar Hollmann, who lost the use of his right arm while capricvio the Great War. More cwpriccio were necessary. Capriccio appeared between the modernistic Concertino ofand the popular Sinfonietta of In four movements, it remains somewhat of an oddity not only in the field of chamber music, but in Janacek’s output as well.


The first movement, marked Allegro, presents an energetic melody in the piano, which is then transferred to the trombone and trumpet in turn. The tune is accompanied by a somewhat off-kilter oompah-band accompaniment, that sometimes veers into humorously low ranges of pitch. The second movement divides the ensemble more discretely into groups; the piano is given center stage for the presentation of a gentle theme, only occasionally punctuated by brass inflections.

The trombone then joins the piano for a rather frenetic duet, which is followed by the first entrance of the flute. Having been reserved until the middle of the second movement, the introduction of this new instrumental color is striking and effective.

The third movement is notable for its deliberate contrasting of a light-hearted tuba solo and a more sorrowful strain in the trumpet. These two temperaments struggle for control throughout the movement. The final movement, marked Andante, is the most diverse. Begins with a duet for flute and piano, the texture soon gives way to a much more active texture featuring lively brass and keyboard flourishes.

However, the piano leaves the rest of the ensemble behind and shifts the mood toward introspection during an extended, tonally dark solo. The entire ensemble then rejoins and ends the work with a lively counterpoint of triplets. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
