Rimsky-Korsakov - Scheherazade

Here is a piece you may have heard before.  The composer named the piece Scheherazade because it brought to everyone’s mind the fairy-tale wonders of Arabian Nights. The piece itself is a story about a storyteller – one of the greatest of all, who inspired this exotic music.i love this piece. You can imagine the rolling of the sea and through the violin Scheherazade telling us her story.
