Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Scheherazade - Suite From the Opera "The Golden Cockerel" download mp3 album
Scheherazade, also commonly Sheherazade, 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.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic works which brought him world fame – the symphonic suite Scheherazade, Capriccio Espagnol, the Russian Easter Festival Overture, as well as the operas May Night, theSnow Maiden, Sadko, Christmas Eve, Mlada, The Legend ofthe Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevroniya, The Golden Cockerel and others. In 1862 Rimsky-Korsakov graduated from the naval academy. Soon afterward he sailed on the clipper ship Almaz on a long voyage, the vessel anchoring in New York City; Baltimore, Maryland; and Washington, . at the height of the American Civil War. He remained a naval officer for some time, continuing to study composition on his own.
In one of his letters to his pupil Maximilian Steinberg, he wrote: I want to disgrace Tsar Dodon completely. Female slaves with peacock feather fans, Arab footboys in white turbans, musicians in wide shalwars, with enormous tambourines in their hands, horned mysterious monsters, and warriors in extraordinary silvery helmets and armour - all these flare up on the stage like fireworks, enchanting spectators by their colourful combinations. Act I scene from The Golden Cockerel opera at the Casino Theatre in Vichy.
