Capriccio Espagnol – N. Rimsky-Korsakov
Capriccio Espagnol, Op. 34, is the common Western title for an orchestral work based on Spanish folk melodies and written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1887.
Rimsky-Korsakov originally intended to write the work for a solo violin with orchestra, but later decided that a purely orchestral work would do better justice to the lively melodies.
This transcription respects the original tone-colour of the piece.
Recording: (live) by Unión Musical de Valladares (E) – conducted by Juan Lois Diéguez.
(The violin solo is an interpretative addition of these performers.)
