Product Details


Originally intended for solo violin and orchestra, Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov later determined that the five Spanish folk melodies used in each of the movements would be better served in a purely orchestral work.  Often lauded for its orchestration, the work features a large percussion section and many unique techniques and articulations such as the fourth movement where the violinists, violists, and cellists are asked to imitate guitars.  Movements: I. Alborada, II. Variazioni, III. Alborada, IV. Scena e canto gitano ("Scene and Gypsy song"), and V. Fandango asturiano
