«España» Rhapsody for Orchestra

Maurice Ravel
Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow

It wasn’t just the French who peered over the Pyrenees in the 19th century with a rapidly growing fascination for all things Spanish. Emanuel Chabrier may have lit the touchpaper with his «España» of 1883, but the craze radiated out as far as Russia, where Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his «Capriccio espagnol». For Maurice Ravel, whose mother was Basque, it was a matter of family honour to celebrate the Iberian temperament. And with the sweet-scented moods of Manuel de Falla’s «Nights in the Gardens of Spain» in the form of a divine piano concerto, the magic is complete – unfolded here by Elena Bashkirova on the piano and Jun Märkl conducting.
