This delightful tuba solo has become a firm favourite all over the world in several versions.

Written for James Gourlay (who premiered the orchestral version in 2005) Capriccio is by turns bold and purposeful, broody and romantic. With a couple of short cadenzas neatly woven into the structure it is effectively a nine-minute concerto with a proven track record with players and audiences.

Capriccio is an important contribution to the literature for the instrument.
