This week’s Symphonies of Iowa broadcast features the Des Moines Symphony’s “Capriccio Espagnol & Beethoven’s Pastoral” concert. The program includes Elena Urioste’s Des Moines Symphony debut with Glazunov’s Violin Concerto, as well as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol.
The program opens dramatically with Beethoven’s beloved “Pastoral” Symphony, which evokes the beautiful countryside including a boisterous thunderstorm that dissipates into one of the most famous melodies in the symphonic repertoire: the Shepherd’s Song. The program concludes with the rhythmic and exotic Capriccio Espagnol. Tune in on Sunday, February 14th at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, February 15th at 7 p.m. for this Symphonies of Iowa broadcast.
