In this program, among dazzling soundscapes and narratives, the orchestra’s “colors” are bursting with creativity. With Borodin, the young musicians of the OAM go back to 1880, to the time of the tsars. The symphonic poem In the Steppes of Central Asia illustrated deserts, the movement of troops and the trotting of horses. A few years earlier, Édouard Lalo had dedicated a work to the famous Spanish violinist Pablo Sarasate. This explains the rhythms of Malagueña and Habanera in his concertante symphony. Finally, in 1887, Rimsky-Korsakov recalled the memory of a fleeting visit to our neighboring country. A Spanish Capriccio, then.
