MINI-SCORE
The ‘jota’ is a genre of music and the associated dance known throughout Spain, most likely originating in Aragon. Being a visual representation, the jota is danced and sung accompanied by castanets, and the interpreters tend to wear regional costumes. Many non-Spanish composers have used the ‘Jota Aragonesa’ in various works. Amongst these is Glinka’s ‘Caprice Billant’. The orchestration of the Capriccio is notable in its wide use of the multiple colors possible in an orchestral setting. Glinka does not resort to doubling parts excessively to produce a full sound. The enormous amounts of instrumental combinations that Glinka goes through is quite amazing. Also of note is the use of harp and pizzicato strings to convey the sound of the acoustic guitar.
