Why See San Francisco Symphony - Fabio Luisi Conducts Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade?
Once upon a time
The San Francisco Symphony is joined by Fabio Luisi for this program of escapism toplined by Rimsky-Korsakov's exhilarating 'narrative in sound', the ravishing Scheherazade. Based on the stories in Arabian Nights, Rimsky-Korsakov takes us to soaring heights as the magic of these age-old fairytales unfolds in a blaze of love, adventure and more!
The concert will warm up with Glinka's overture from Ruslan and Ludmila, the opera based on an Alexander Pushkin poem taken from Russian folk tales, before Mario Brunello takes to the stage for Tchaikovy's Rococo Variations. Though not steeped in the magic of the other two pieces, it represents its own kind of reverie as it evokes a by gone era, inspired by the alluring work of Mozart.
Opening night: 18 April 2019
