A ruthless sultan, his beautiful young wife, and 1001 nights of stories from beyond the imagination. That was the inspiration behind Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade: a glittering, wide-screen orchestral epic, drenched in full symphonic colour. It's the climax of a concert that starts with Richard Strauss’ vision of the infinite, and features the ear-dazzling concerto that Ravel wrote for a pianist who’d lost an arm. Our soloist Kirill Gerstein can play it with one hand behind his back!
R Strauss Tod und Verklärung
Ravel Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
