In 1888, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov turned the collection of Middle Eastern and Indian Tales known as The Thousand and One Nights into music with his Scherezade. It’s a work that the composer describes as “an orchestral suite… representing a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale images.” It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
