The Waltz-Capriccio, composed in the spring of 2010, is cast in three major sections. A dark, nebulous prologue and epilogue bookend the titular section of this work. While the piece explores an array of affects ranging from sentimental to comical to chaotic, the overall mood is one of melancholic contemplation, as the piece fades to a remote distance.
