Musco Center and Kaleidoscope Present

Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra

Rimsky-Korsakov – Scheherazade 

Sunday, October 13, 2019 | 4pm

 

After last season’s popular debut performance at the Musco Center, Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra returns to perform Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, one of the most beautiful and exciting works written for orchestra. Now in their sixth season and recognized as one of the world’s fastest emerging conductorless orchestras, Kaleidoscope has been critically acclaimed in the LA Times, Washington Post, and Symphony Magazine. The program also features works for voice and orchestra with award-winning sopranos Alisa Jordheim (USA), Axelle Fanyo (France), and Jerica Steklasa (Slovenia), selected from Kaleidoscope’s international vocal competition, which received 1,600 applications from musicians in over 90 countries.

“In the top handful of best concerts I've ever experienced!”

PROGRAM

Rimsky-Korsakov – Scheherazade 

Scheherazade, Op. 35 is a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888 and based on One Thousand and One Nights (also known as The Arabian Nights). This orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general. It is considered Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular work.
