Symphonie espagnole

The Symphonie espagnole in D minor, Op. 21, is a work for violin and orchestra by Édouard Lalo. The work was written in 1874 for violinist Pablo Sarasate, 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, launched a period when Spanish-themed music came into vogue. The Symphonie espagnole is one of Lalo's two most played works, the other being his Cello Concerto in D minor; the piece has five movements: A typical performance runs just over half an hour. One of the shorter recordings, conductor Eugene Ormandy's 1967 recording with the Philadelphia Orchestra, featuring violinist Isaac Stern, runs 32 minutes and 43 seconds, it was common practice until the middle of the 20th century for performances of the work to omit the Intermezzo, leaving a four-movement work that more reflected the traditional structure of a symphony. The Symphonie espagnole had some influence on the genesis of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major.

In March 1878, Tchaikovsky was staying at Nadezhda von Meck's estate at Clarens, while recovering from the breakdown of his disastrous marriage and his subsequent suicide attempt. His favourite pupil, the violinist Iosif Kotek, shortly arrived from Berlin with a lot of new music for violin, his collection included the Symphonie espagnole, which he and Tchaikovsky played through to great delight. This gave Tchaikovsky the idea of writing a violin concerto, he set aside his current work on a piano sonata and started on the concerto on 17 March. With Kotek's technical help, the concerto was finished by 11 April.
