The instrumental ensemble La Capricciosa has dedicated itself to the rediscovery and performance of music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Since 1997, the concertmaster of the Orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin, Mika Yonezawa, has organized concerts on historical instruments with colleagues and other guest artists. The core members of the ensemble, next to Mika Yonezawa, are Peter Wünnenberg(violin), Christoph Lamprecht (cello) and Lutz Kohl (harpsichord/organ).

According to the requirements of the score, the ensemble may be enlarged by additional strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, a theorbist and a baroque harp. Since 2010 the ensemble has been performing under the name LA CAPRICCIOSA, to underscore its versatility and wide range of repertoire, which encompasses the instrumental and sacred music of the baroque.
