Rondo Caprice is the fourth and final movement from the
composer's 'Sinfonietta', originally commissioned for Youth
Orchestra by the Sydney Symphony Youth Orchestra. It was
subsequently rearranged for Wind Orchestra in 2007.
The work was to be conceived in neo-classical style. This is reflected in its marriage of classical forms, clear textures and simple rhythmic motifs, with a more dissonant harmonic language, including the use of chromaticism, polychords and modes.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 3 flutes, 2 oboes, 3 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet in B flat, 2 bassoons, 2 alto saxophones, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, 4 horns, 3 trumpets in B flat, 2 trombones, bass trombone, euphonium, tuba, timpani, percussion (3 players).
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — High-level Secondary to tertiary level - numerous chromatic turns at fast tempo
Arrangement of orchestral work at request of Coups de Vents music organisation based in Lille, France. To be published and distributed by Feeling Music Editions.
