Nicolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV May Night: Overture
Iain GRANDAGE Dances with Devils: Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra
Nicolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade
Benjamin Northey conductor
Claire Edwardes percussion
Based on the legendary tales of the One Thousand and One Nights, Rimsky-Korsakov’s intoxicating Scheherazade is an exotic, timeless fantasy. Brimming with sensuality and wonder, this audience favourite tells the story of Scheherazade, a beautiful princess who every night weaves ever-more enchanting tales to stave off her execution.
But first, Iain Grandage’s Dances with Devils depicts Australian gothic stories in a vividly dynamic concerto especially written for Australian percussionist Claire Edwardes.
Featured non-Australian music: Rimsky-Korsakov
