Main Street Music

According to pianist Nathana√ęl Gouin, there is in caprice a form of liberty devoid of heaviness. The fact that so many composers have taken an interest in this genre indicates a genuine liking for this liberty. Each one of them makes a mark on it's identity in a profoundly different way, from Bach to Ohana. Using this idea, he was able to compose a programme of German, Russian and French music, whilst choosing works which embrace the spirit of the caprice and, more importantly, resembling him.
