Regional Variations (2)

'Northern Concert Hall' Part 2-

Regional Programme London

Part 2
Oriental subjects always had a strong fascination for Rimsky-Korsakov, and in this Suite the East, with its blazing sunshine and its brilliance of colour, is vividly presented in the music. The subject is, of course, from the Arabian Nights, and the composer prefaced his score with the following note : ' The Sultan Schahriar, convinced of the infidelity of the whole race of women, has sworn to send each of his wives to death after only one bridal night. But Scheherazade saves her life by interesting him in tales which she recounts one after another for one thousand and one nights. Impelled by curiosity, the Sultan puts off from day to day the fate of the lady, and ends, as all the world knows, by renouncing his bloodthirsty intention.'
