Conducted by Basil Cameron
Glinka, Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Lalo, Bizet, Chabrier, Debussy, and Ravel have all written one or more works either based on Spanish tunes or frankly setting out to secure the ' atmosphere ' of Spain. One of the finest is Ravel's Spanish Rhapsody.
It is scored for a full modern orchestra, including two harps, celesta, and sarrusophone, all of which are used with restraint and a remarkable feeling for contrast and variety of tone colour.
