Description: Hailed by Tchaikovsky as 'a colossal masterpiece of instrumentation', Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Capriccio Espagnol' has delighted audiences since its premiere in 1887. The melodies used in the piece go back to themes sketched by the composer for a virtuoso work for solo violin and orchestra. After changing his mind, Rimsky decided to make the work a display piece for the entire orchestra. This arrangement features two sections of the original capriccio: the 'Alborada' (morning serenade) in 2/4 and the 'Fandango of the Asturias' (a dance traditionally played with guitar and castanet accompaniment) in 3/4. Tastefully arranged by Richard Meyer, Rimsky's flashy showpiece is now playable by the less-experienced orchestra.
