' The Flight of the Bumble-bee' is taken from an opera of Rimsky-Korsakov's called The Legend of Tsar Saltan , of which the story is an old Russian fairv-tale, akin in some ways to our own ' King Arthur ' legends. Produced in Moscow, towards the end of 1906, it is among the last of the composer's works ; listeners will remember that he died in 1908 in St. Petersburg.
The piece, illustrating the night of the mythical bumble-bee, is a brilliant solo for the flute with the slightest of accompaniments, a particularly happy example of Rimsky-Korsakov's whimsical manner.
