Tune of the Day: Caprice in E minor by Mercadante
from “20 Caprices”
This Largo is the first piece from a collection of 20 Capricci by Italian composer Saverio Mercadante. It is not certain when these caprices were composed, but scholars tend to associate them with Mercadante's early years in Naples, between 1811 and 1814.
