Scheherezade: Musical Storytelling of 1,001 Arabian Nights

Details

Bask in the lavish sounds of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade, which depicts various tales from the celebrated poetic epic 1,001 Arabian Nights. Its lush tapestry of musical storytelling has enchanted audiences for more than a century. First, clarinet virtuoso David Krakauer guides us through the history of klezmer, the rich Eastern European Jewish musical tradition passed down through generations of folk musicians across the globe. Then, we hear the Pacific Northwest premiere of The Fretless Clarinet, a new klezmer-inspired concerto co-written by Krakauer and his partner Kathleen Tagg.
