Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade

Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov is perhaps the most famous among the Romantic composers forays into the world of exoticism. The luxuriously rich orchestration brings the world of the One Thousand and One Nights to life with an amazing immediacy. John Adams is also exploring an uncharted territory – the life in China that had replaced the Great Wall with the Iron Curtain. In Chairman Dances from the opera Nixon in China, it is the foxtrot dance that is making the first dents in the wall of China’s self-imposed isolation from the West.
