Capricious Variations for Violin, Cello, Piano and string orchestra; 1991, single movement; length, c. 7:19.
Written for the G.A.T.E. honor orchestra of the Garden Grove Unified School District, Ed Peterson conductor. We needed a kind of “Beethoven triple concerto” in a single movement, 7 minute piece.
Capricious Variations starts in C major and moves around to other key centers including Ab and C minor.
The solo parts are not easy; they were written for advanced high school student soloists.
The string orchestra should be fairly advanced, too.
