This volume contains newly edited versions of four important later orchestral works by Walton: Capriccio Burlesco, Improvisations on an Impromptu of Benjamin Britten, Prologo e Fantasia, and Varii Capricci. The first three works were written for American orchestras; the last for the opening of the Royal Festival Hall in 1976.
