Listening to the Capriol Suite

For the 2016 Mid Year Concert, the Intermezzo Strings are playing movements from the “Capriol Suite” by Peter Warlock. This work requires careful listening. Some moments are filled with beautiful harmonies, others are written to be so harsh that our teeth grind. How can we learn the difference?

Listening to a recording can help, especially if you read your part while listening. As it happens, the LYCO already has a recording of the Capriol Suite, made during the 2006 Residential Summer String Camp. You can listen to it in the RSSC 2006 Gallery.
