Capriccio Espagnol (arr: W.Kanengiser), N. Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908)

  • Alborada
  • Variazioni
  • Alborada
  • Scena e Canto Gitano
  • Fandango Asturiano

With a clear Spanish flavour the Capriccio Espagnol (based on Spanish folk melodies and dances/rhythms) is an ideal candidate for guitar arrangement. Korsakov wrote the original full orchestra version in 1887 and asks instruments with solos and cadenzas to imitate the guitar “quasi guitar”, a characteristic that has been expertly realised by the arranger throughout this lively piece.
