Grand Rapids Symphony - Scheherezade

Closed October 6, 2018

All I desired was that the hearer, if he liked my piece as symphonic music, should carry away the impression that it is beyond a doubt an Oriental narrative of some numerous and varied fairy-tale wonders


Why See Grand Rapids Symphony - Scheherezade?

Adventures in sound

Hop on a magic carpet ride with Rimsky-Korsakov's captivating interpretation of Arabian Nights. A vivid fairytale brimming with romance, adventure, magic and more, let the Grand Rapids Symphony, under the baton of Marcelo Lehninger, transport you right to the heart of the story!

By turns dazzling and exhilarating, Rimsky-Korsakov's 'narrative in sound' Scheherazade is a thrilling interpretation of the age-old fairytales detailed in Arabian Nights, or 1001 Nights. As we're taken in by the tales of the titular storyteller Rimsky-Korsakov captivates us through beguiling melodies and rhythms inspired by both Russian music and the allure of the Middle East as seen by the West.

His most popular work, it top lines this exciting evening that also features an appearance from the legendary pianist Jean Yves Thibaudet who'll take on Khachaturian's Concerto for Piano.
