This is a song of various expressions. Caprice, or capricious means a merry style.
At times, harmonies are varied and deceptive to analyze. This makes for a slightly unusual sound.

For such light music, there are various "tricks".

In the middle of the work, a floating feel is expressed by use of a whole tone scale. Besides that, there are many more "tricks" hidden in the music. Try to find them.
Use of hidden elements and the style itself reminds one of a clown. Hence the title "Clown of Caprice".
Try to have powerfully expressive performances with a light feel, making use of the brass septet's character.
