RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Capriccio Espagnol
SAINT-SAËNS March Militaire Francaise from ‘Suite Algerienne’
BIZET Carmen Suite No. 1
BORODIN Symphony No. 2 in B Minor

In Percy Grainger Youth Orchestra’s first concert of 2022, venture into pure bliss in Orchestral Fantasy. Rimsky-Korsakov transports us to the Mediterranean for Capriccio Espagnol, followed by Carmen Suite No. 1 from Bizet’s quintessential work. Along with a flurry of brass from Saint-Saëns’ March Militaire Francaise and the exploration of the brilliance of Borodin on sections from Symphony No. 2 in B Minor, Orchestral Fantasy is a delightful snapshot of Europe.
