Every note tells a story...

A concert to enchant! In 1001 Arabian Nights the Sultana Scheherazade saved her life by weaving fabulous tales for her husband night after night – Rimsky-Korsakov tells equally magical stories in this brilliant suite. Brahms’ exquisite Violin Concerto was a beautiful gift to the composer’s violinist friend, Joseph Joaquim.

Where have I heard it before?

At the violent end of the film There Will be Blood you can hear the opening of the Violin Concert's third movement. For fans of winter sports, Scheherazade is an incredibly popular choice to accompany figure-skating!
