Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov – Scheherazade, Op. 35
Homage to native traditions. A reprise of Fire-Mountain paints a musical portrait of Mount Rainier’s melting glaciers by Puyallup native Daniel Ott. Grammy-winning tabla virtuoso Sandeep Das will perform Wijeratne’s Tabla Concerto, which he calls “the best Western classical piece written for my instrument.” Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade tells the captivating story of Arabian Nights through beautiful orchestration and thematic elements.
