Scheherazade in 1001 Images
Scheherazade op. 35
With this work Melle views the Orient from a grand perspective. Weaving between nature and breathless urban clamour, between ornamentation and religiosity, he shows us a picture of Turkey that transcends the ugly insanity currently depicted in the news – timeless and touching.
“In doing so, Melle achieves a double feat. With stunning imagery, he ties the music into a story that remains vague enough not to compete with it. And yet it’s so catchy that even the eye can hear along.” (Luzerner Zeitung)
