Café Capriccio

An acoustic quintet that celebrates the music and culture of European Café Society.

For Europeans the idea of ‘café culture’ goes back centuries, when the great thinkers, poets, philosophers, artists and even the revolutionaries of France would gather in their local café to debate, share and plot.

Art and history were shaped at the tables of these cafés while musicians wandered from cafe to cafe or performed on a small stage inside. The music played is often fairly free in form and lively, a ‘caprice’, with the occasional melancholic piece thrown in for variety.

Cafe Capriccio aims to reproduce the music and atmosphere enjoyed by cafe society with melodies and rhythms as diverse as the countries they originate from.

Cafe Capriccio are professional and semi professional musicians and their performances rarely fail to delight.
