Tune of the Day: Caprice No. 6 in D major
from “20 Caprices”
This triplet-based Allegretto is the sixth 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.
