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 Scheherazade (8572693).

Classic FM Magazine

December 2011


“the Seattle Symphony's performances for Gerard Schwarz don't just sparkle, as you would expect at this kind of super-charged Amercian technical level. Their brilliant response is also strongly characterised at every point: Capriccio espagnol here has a dark and spicy pungency that makes it something more than just a pretty Spanish postcard...It's genuinely difficult to imagine better performances. This is a delicious orchestral feast.”
