Edouard Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole was considered fluff until recently, when the new generation of violinists began to champion it. The work was written in 1874 for violinist Pablo Sarasate, and premiered in Paris in February 1875. Although called a “Spanish Symphony”, it is considered a violin concerto by musicians today. The piece has Spanish motifs throughout, and launched a period when Spanish-themed music came into vogue.
Alfredo Campoli (20 October 1906 – 27 March 1991) was an Italian-born British violinist, often known simply as Campoli. He was noted for the beauty of the tone he produced from the violin. Campoli spent his childhood and much of his career in England.
