Capriccio espagnol: and other concert favorites

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 1998 - Music - 233 pages
Full of atmospheric suggestion and luminous tone-painting, Rimsky-Korsakov’s orchestration appears at its very best in the descriptive passages of these three concert favorites: Capriccio Espagnol, Op. 34, a lively and whimsical piece based on Spanish gypsy airs and fandangos; the Russian Easter Festival Overture, Op. 36, a celebratory composition based on liturgical themes; and "Dance of the Buffoons," a sprightly piece from the opera Snow Maiden (A Fairytale of Spring). Authoritative early scores. Notes.
