        FM Symphony Orchestra Young People's Concert: Capriccio Espagnol

        Written in 1887 by Russian composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakoff; this piece is actually inspired by Spanish folk melodies. The work was originally intended to be for a solo violin with the orchestra, but the composer decided that the full orchestra would make the pieces even livelier. These selections also clearly show cadenzas for each of the families in the orchestra. Between pieces, conductor Jane Linde Capistran addresses her audience and explains the different sections of the orchestra while using vocabulary fundamental to music education.
