When his older brother started sending letters back home from naval adventures in the Far East, Rimsky-Korsakov fell in love with the faraway land he’d never see. The composer eventually made it as far as Istanbul on a family holiday, but his spellbinding orchestral adventure after The Arabian Nights was as great a tribute to his beloved land of the Orient as anyone could hope to make, and the greatest piece of musical storytelling ever created. Hear Rimsky-Korsakov’s sultry, dramatic and captivating portrayal of the young Sultana Scheherazade’s stories here, alongside Tchaikovsky’s own slice of orchestral fantasy and a new work by James Horner, the double Oscar-winning composer for Titanic.
