Lively, brilliant, whimsical. The New Mexico Philharmonic presents an evening of capriccios! NMPhil concertmaster Cármelo de los Santos performs the virtuosic Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso of Saint-Saëns. Also on the program, two Russian composers’ takes on the folk tunes of Spain and Italy: the brightly orchestrated Capriccio espagnol of Rimsky-Korsakov and the Capriccio Italien of Tchaikovsky, inspired by a soul-healing trip the composer took to Rome. Music Director Roberto Minczuk leads the evening, which ends with Rachmaninoff’s Caprice bohémien.
