Caprice

composer
published 1897

 
The title of Caprice suggests a quick, bounding piece, but instead Chabrier gives us a strangely slow and declamatory work, with no apparent difficulties: written for a sight-reading competition, it is quite unlike any other work by Chabrier.

English: Roland Smithers

Le titre de Caprice suggérerait une œuvre rapide, bondissante, mais au lieu de cela, nous avons une pièce lente et déclamée, étrange, sans difficultés apparentes (il aurait été écrit pour un concours de lecture à vue!) et sans équivalent dans les autres œuvres de Chabrier.

extrait des notes rédigées par Jean-Paul Sévilla © 2006

Der Titel Caprice läßt schnelle, springende Musik erwarten, doch statt dessen komponiert Chabrier hier ein seltsam langsames und deklamatorisches Stück, das keinerlei augenfällige Schwierigkeiten zu enthalten scheint. Chabrier schrieb es für einen Wettbewerb im Blattlesen, und es ähnelt keinem seiner anderen Werke.
