RIMSKY-KORSAKOV

Scheherazade

Travel to the world of the 1001 Arabian Nights in Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling Scheherazade, with its languid violin melodies, robust brass fanfares and exotic percussion. A commissioned work by Julia Wolfe — Pulitzer Prize-winner, MacArthur Fellow, “an heir to the legacy of Aaron Copland” (The New Yorker) and DSO’s Composer-in-Residence — has its exciting Dallas premiere. Plus, Lise Lindstrom sings Barber’s rarely-performed Andromache’s Farewell.

“Start to finish, scarcely glancing at the score, Luisi managed all the shifts of tone and timbre with authority – and, indeed, elegance.”
