Rimsky-Korsakow's Capriccio Espagnol is one of his finest works for many aspects. It is a five movement work based on Spanish melodies; Alborada, is a festive and exciting dance, Variazioni (variations of the first melody), Alborada from the first movement, Scena e canto gitano ("Scene and gypsey song") and Fandango asturiano.
This particular setting of Capriccio Espagnol from which I wrote the arrangment, is Rimsky-Korsakow's own piano transcription of the orchestral work. The arrangement is set for large saxophone chamber orchestra and uses all CMB saxophones except for the sopranino from the JABB library.
Soprano 1 & 2
Tenor 1 & 2
This work is being performed on March 4th by the Saxophone Ensemble of Northwestern University, Evanston, IL.
