We will also explore this beloved composer’s works further with his beautiful Sleeping Beauty Rose Adagio and Waltz. The evening will close with Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling Scheherazade, the colorful suite inspired by the beguiling princess in The Arabian Nights, featuring Leonid Yanovskiy in one of the most recognizable concertmaster solos in the literature.
