Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade

This concert is as exotic as its name. Rimsky-Korsakov put music to the story of Scheherazade, the storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights, whose beguiling tales keep a cruel king from putting her to death. Soloist, Marco Sartor from Uruguay, will perform Rodrigo’s spicy Concierto de Aranjuez on guitar.
