Rimsky-Korsakov 'Scheherazade'



As Scheherazade's seductive tones enthral the brutal Sultan, we are transported to a world of swirling seas, Princes and Princesses and colourful festivals. The unsurpassed master of the orchestral palette, Rimsky-Korsakov is shown here at his best - every detail of his vibrant orchestral textures is captured in a grand three dimensional perspective by just a single microphone. Conductor, orchestra and acoustic work together to bring out the great excitement of this orchestral showpiece - biting power and brilliance interspersed by moments of extreme tenderness.
