Product Description

Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov 1001 Nights Narrated by Bernard Cribbins David Nolan, violin Philharmonia Orchestra, London 1-2 Sinbad The Sailor 3-4 The Story Of Dervish 5-6 The Prince And The Princess 7-8 The Story Of The Second Dervish 9 Conclusion

Amazon.co.uk

The Naxos label has devised an excellent way of presenting Rimsky-Korsakov's symphonic suite Sheherezade on this cockle-warming CD performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Enrique Batiz: Bernard Cribbins has been recruited to recount between the orchestral episodes four of the 1001 bedtime stories which the eponymous brave princess tantalisingly told to her homicidal husband so that he would postpone murdering her as he had done more than a thousand of her predecessors. Concert performances of the work tend towards the monotonous as each wafting interlude falls upon the next, but Cribbins' warm, unhurried, avuncular delivery brings each on as refreshingly as a new dawn. The stories are Sinbad the Sailor, who was shipwrecked on the back of a whale, Prince Taj al-Mulak, who loved a girl he had never seen and two tales of one-eyed dervishes. David Nolan's twisting solo violin breathes hot Arabian breezes onto the ear. It is the gentle, mystical side of Islam which is presented here although the barbarity of Sheherezade's husband does have the hallmarks of Taliban misogyny. Still, Mr Cribbins makes an excellent storytelling wife in anyone's religion. --Rick Jones

Format: Audio CD
The story teller is fabulous, really drawing you into the story. Thestory is then followed with the piece of music reflecting the story. Itis a brilliant format. My 5 year old loves being allowed to listen tothe story and then the music as part of the calm down before he goes tobed. Although small children will enjoy it, the presentation and musicisn't in the least simplistic or child like.

The stories here are not structured beginning-middle-end like you might be used to - they're meandering and odd and very bloodthirsty, with people being tortured and having their eyes put out and their hands and feet cut off. Also the music is very formal, it brings to mind (for me) Russian cavalry officers under the Tsar. Not a big hit in my house
