Product Description

Product Description

Described by the composer as a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale images and designs of oriental character, Rimsky-Korsakov s symphonic suite Sheherazade has delighted listeners for generations. The rapturous solo violin plays the part of the slave who narrates the wonderful tales of the Arabian Nights, including the adventures of Sinbad, Prince Kalender and the Festival of Baghdad. The suite, or musical pictures , from The Tale of Tsar Saltan depicts episodes from this magical opera, from which the mischievous Flight of the Bumblebee is also drawn. The Seattle Symphony is one of the world s most recorded orchestras, with 12 GRAMMY® nominations and two Emmy Awards.

Another super-value offering from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Great sound balance and a quality performance so nicely produced. The music speaks for its self - the sheherazade is of premium quality and is as good as any of the many versions that i have listened to. The other works on this disc are all worth repeated plays and worth getting to know. Rimskys music can enlighten your soul especially when played and recorded so beautifully fresh like it is here on this CD. Buy it and Enjoy.

The Seattle Symphony Orchestra I confess to having known relatively little about until now. Under conductor Gerard Schwartz, their performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's Sherherazade must rank as one of the finest on disc. The performance of both this and extracts from The Tale of the Tsar Sultan are in a class of their own. Superlative musicianship and under maestro Schwartz, played with panache. I would exhort those who share a passion for Rimsky's music to purchase the Seattle recordings of the suites from The Snow Maiden, Sadko, Mlada and Le Coq d'or and the glorious Capriccio Espangnol and Russian Easter Overture. This is musicianship of the highest quality.You will certainly not be disappointed.
