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.
