Yet style appears to be a fixation here, and issues of appropriation and deconstruction are raised that make this work an important example of postmodernism, apart from Rochberg's frequent demurrals

George Rochberg -Caprice Variations. listen: Rochberg-Pachelbel Variations (Authorised Transcription by Peter Sheppard Skaerved) I Solisti di Zagreb (directed by PSS). From conversations in Philadelphia, London, and Saarbrücken 2001-2002). In Banja Luka, I first ‘got’ ‘Caprice Variations’, or rather; it finally really took hold of me, of my soul. Curiously, ‘Caprice variations’ begin with an overture, Variation 1, Allegro Energico, somewhat reminiscent of Telemann. This is distinguished by absolutely no memorable thematic material, nothing but the cadence that will be central to the whole set. I have often wondered if this is a joke aimed at sui generis virtuoso violin music, all the more ironic, as the cycle can be seen as a transformation of the most widely recognised show piece ever written for the instrument. George liked the impact of this variation played at ‘full pelt’.

Liner Notes – Peter Sheppard Skaerved. Violin – Peter Sheppard Skaerved. Recorded in the church of St. John, Loughton, Essex on 28 & 30 August 2000. Caprice Variations - Violin Sonata ‎(2xCD, Album). Metier Sound & Vision.

The Caprice Variations seem to have been designed as a survey of violin styles through the centuries. There are long tracts that come across as no more than baroque pastiche; there are homages to Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and Dvorak, and a final nod towards Paganini's 24th Caprice, which was the starting point. The whole thing seems a pointless exercise, but it's the kind of work, I suspect, that is much more fun to play than it is to listen to. Peter Sheppard Skaerved's performance communicates that kind of relish.
