Usually ships within 1-3 days
Rimsky-Korsakov's colourful Capriccio espagnol reflects a Russian fascination with distant lands, evoking sunny climes and exotic dancing in one of the composer's most popular and uplifting scores. Steeped in the cultural nationalism of the 'Mighty Handful', the Overtures are linked to deeply Russian themes and tales, portraying dramatic life amongst the Tsars with brilliant orchestration and inspired use of folk or liturgical melodies. This release follows the multi-GRAMMY?«-nominated and Emmy Award-winning Seattle Symphony 'spectacular' (MusicWeb International) recording of Sheherazade (8.572693).
