 Do not deprive yourself September 7, 2013 By Anthony G. (valley stream, NY) See All My Reviews "Do not deprive yourself of learning, and listening ,to Zelenka and his compositions. There is neither a boring note nor uninspired phrase that I have ever heard in any of his music. And The Capriccios are no exception to my characterization. They are also the crown of my Zelenka collection." Report Abuse
