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
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
