Music of Love and Intrigue

Concert Hall, QPAC

Arabian Nights

#The Arabian Nights have never gone out of fashion in modern times, featuring in all forms of media from books to Disney films.

But surely one of the most thrilling spins on these time-honoured tales is Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite Scheherazade

The title is the name of a Persian queen who tells stories night after night to her controlling Sultan husband in order to keep herself alive. Scheherazade herself is represented by the poignant sound of a solo violin, while the massed orchestra conjure up tales of adventure, fun, and mystery. Conductor Laureate Johannes Fritzsch will lead the Orchestra on this exotic musical journey. 

The concert also features Ravel’s impressionistic take on the waltz, La valse.

#This concert also appears as part of our Friday Nights series
