Capriccio is defined as "an instrumental piece in free form." Composer Kevin McChesney has placed this piece in 7/8 time with occasional 6/8 and 3/8 measures with a middle section in 3/4. The tempo marking is "With fire! quarter = 144 and quarter-dot = 96." Driving eighth-note accompaniment moves the work along while the melody is more a chordal texture than melodic line. Lots of staccato technique is found in the beginning sections before the slower, 3/4 section opts for mallets on suspended bells in the bass and treble bells. Tempo I reappears and adds dramatic mart and mart-lifts. A full shakes and ascending, marted line completes the piece that should have all the ringers hopping! Set in c minor, measures total 150.
