Misc. Comments

The Capriccio marks a new stage in Fine’s writing—her music is more freely dissonant, key signatures disappear, and tonal references are rare. As a result she stresses melodic line, the talent that was so apparent in her early music…. Rather than a collection of short movements, the piece is designed as one long movement divided into several sections. Each instrument has prominent melodies, sometimes solo and sometimes accompanied, some of which Fine sets as canons.
