Books | Orchestra

Publisher: Dover Publications
Format: Books | Study Score
One of the world's most beloved symphonic compositions, Scheherazade is a shimmering, evocative musical treatment of the legend of the sultan's wife who staved off certain death by entertaining her husband with fascinating stories for 1001 nights.
Imbued with exotic Near Eastern moods and the subtle flavour of Russian folk music, this lyrical masterpiece - a staple of the orchestral repertoire for more than a century - is renowned for its beauty.
Reproduced here from an authoritative early edition, the score appears with bar-numbered movements. Ideal for classroom or home study.
