  • November 20, 2011 Standard

    While many would take this to be an "overplayed" piece of rep, I would simply call it a standard. It's a great piece to mould to your liking in the Improvisation then let loose on the Caprice. Overall a fun piece. As far as this edition, there were a...

    couple spots where the notes were much lighter or nearly invisible due to printing issues. It may have been an issue singularly with my copy; but with that said, it doesn't hinder a good performance.

  • December 20, 2010 An etude, not a suitable solo piece

    I'm a freshman in college and my professor assigned this to me. I think it sounds a lot like an etude, and not a solo piece. It may be a good study tool to work on technique, but in my opinion, it's absolutely boring. The "Improvisation" section is...

    okay and can be pretty if played expressively, but it sounds a little dead since it's unaccompanied. But the "Caprice" section is just a bunch of scales, arpeggios, and chromaticism, and in my opinion, there is no music to be found anywhere in this solo piece. I've listened to it performed and it sounds like just a random hodgepodge of notes someone slapped together. I recommend checking out Bozza's "Aria" instead, or Fisher Tull's "Sarabande and Gigue" if you actually want some music and not just technique exercises.

  • March 14, 2009 Awesome piece

    Took me about three weeks to learn and perform this. Amazing feedback from the crowd! Played it at a student recital as a sophomore in undergrad.

  • January 01, 2009 Great classical repertoire piece

    Real simple. The Improvisation Et Caprice is a great study tool/audition piece/scale exercise piece, as well as an excellent contrast in styles between the two movements. I studied this a loooong time ago in junior high and brought it back (via sheet music plus shipping which I am...

    very pleased with) for a college readmission audition piece. Can't go wrong with Eugene Bozza.

  • March 29, 2008 A Truly Astounding Piece of Music

    An exceptional piece that allows an advanced player to be challenged both technically and musically. Improvisation is beautiful and it showcases a musician's tone as well as vibrato. The Caprice is challenging but is tremedous fun when one gets it down. In all, this piece is outstanding and can...

    showcase one's ability in a variety of ways.
