Berlin Phil: Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol

The Berlin Philharmononic, under the direction of Zubin Mehta, performs Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Español, opus 34. (In Russian, it is априччио на испанские темы, "Capriccio on Spanish Themes").   Rimsky-Korsakov completed the work in 1887. The orchestral work contains five movements and lasts about 16 minutes, the length of this video.
