Tune of the Day: Caprice in E major by Mercadante
from “20 Caprices”
This is the eleventh 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.
