BSO Presents: 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.
