Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra by Igor Stravinsky

Summary

'''Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra''' () was written by Igor Stravinsky in Nice between 1926 and 1929. The score was revised in 1949.

Stravinsky designed the Capriccio to be a virtuosic vehicle which would allow him to earn a living from playing the piano part. The Capriccio, together with the Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments, belonged to a catalogue of breadwinning pieces which Stravinsky composed to support himself after fleeing the Russian Revolution to live in Western Europe.
