EtymologyFrom the adjective bravo
In classical music, a bravura is a virtuosic passage intended to show off the skill of a performer, generally as a solo, and often in a cadenza. It can also be used as an adjective ("a bravura passage"), or refer to a performance of extraordinary virtuosity. The term comes from the Italian for goodness.
