The Music Center

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

Marin Alsop, conductor
Leila Josefowicz, violin

JOHN ADAMS Scheherazade.2
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade                                                                                   

Marin Alsop conducts two contrasting musical takes on the infamous legend from One Thousand and One Nights, Rimsky-Korsakov’s gorgeous and ever-popular Scheherazade and John Adams’ Scheherazade.2. Adams takes Rimsky-Korsakov’s idea of using a solo violin as the voice of the enchantress and turns it into what he describes as a “dramatic symphony” that makes impressive use of the violin. This piece was written expressly for acclaimed violinist Leila Josefowicz.

This concert is not presented by Strathmore.
