Spanish dances, an English idyll and a musical gallery tour

Philip Shaw conductor

Rimsky Korsakov Capriccio Espagnol 15’
Butterworth A Shropshire Lad 12’
Joaquin Turina Danzas Fantasticas 18’
Mussorgsky arr. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition 30’

The annual Snape Prom is the highlight of SYO’s year in which they bring music to celebrate their brilliance and energy. A Russian’s Spanish fantasy to open – full of Iberian melodies and rhythms – is mirrored by Turina’s scintillating dances inspired by his native Andalusia. Butterworth’s wistful tone poem is an oasis of calm prior to one of the greatest of all orchestral showpieces; Ravel’s orchestration of Mussorgsky’s vivid musical gallery culminates in the unforgettable grandeur of The Great Gate of Kiev.
