Scheherazade in 1001 Images

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
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.

“Magical moments – the music was elevating the images and the images elevated the music.” (Mitteldeutsche Zeitung)
