Jun Märkl Conducts Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade

It’s a tale of suspense, surprise, and sensuality, and Scheherazade lets the symphony tell the story. Writer, composer, painter, and pianist Stephen Hough also knows how to tell an artistic story and has released more than 50 CDs and received many Grammy nominations. His skill with music by Saint-Saëns is known the world over. 

Did you know...
Saint-Saëns’ music almost always gives us a scintillating combination of tradition and novelty; in the case of his Piano Concerto No. 5, the nickname, “The Egyptian,” holds out that promise before we hear a note. He composed this work in the Egyptian city of Luxor, a sunny and historic location where he often spent time in the winter. But the concerto’s exoticism is not just imported from Egypt. It also incorporates sources from Java, and from Spain.
