Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade Op.35

Traditional Arabic Music

Sheherazade (Scheherazade; Russian: Шехерaзада, Shekherazada in transliteration), Op. 35, is a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888. Based on One Thousand and One Nights, sometimes known as The Arabian Nights, this orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general. It is considered Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular work. source: wikipedia

    Of course, one has to mention the great influence of Mily Alexeyevich Balakirev on this orchestral suite too. It was in the late 1860s when he wrote the symphonique poem “Tamara” and played a piano version in the presence of some friends. He published the final score on 1880 a common thing with Balakirev’s works and a disadvantage, somehow – 1st Symphony 1860s pub.1890s, 2nd Piano Concerto 1860 Mov. I, 1908-1909 Mov.II, 1910-1911 Mov. III, 1911 final edition and publication (Liapunov). However, the publication of “Tamara” was still years before that of “Scheherazade” and remained an important influence not only for Korsakov but for many others. It became a cornerstone of modern orchestration, as we conceive it nowadays.
