Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Rimsky-Korsakov were musical patriarchs of their time, each contributing their own unique style. Russian Spectacular explores a passionate performance by each of these composers. The program opens with Rimsky-Korsakov’s colorful Capriccio espagnole, consisting of five connected movements each based on Spanish themes. He wrote this piece for a large orchestra and took great advantage of the different timbres by designing melodic passages specific to each instrument. Tchaikovsky even hailed it as “a colossal masterpiece of instrumentation”.
