Yuri Temirkanov

Few orchestras such as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic They have been able to highlight with such success the importance of tradition. The oldest symphony group of Russia-and at the same time one of the most intense and impactful orchestras of the current scene – will offer two concerts in Madrid within the programming cycle Ibermúsica. The following days 5 Y 6 November St. Petersburg Philharmonic will visit the Russian National Auditorium with maestro Yuri Temirkanov with a special program that includes one of the most brilliant pages of orchestral music: the play Scheherezade, from Rimsky-Korsakov.

Complete the program of this evening two compositions Rimsky-Korsakov, the mentioned Scheherezade Y The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh.

Escrita en 1888, Scheherezade es considerada una pieza clave en la historia del repertorio sinfónico. In her, Rimsky-Korsakov combines the discourse of the work in a seductive melody, in addition to proposing a colorful and diaphanous orchestration that he has inspired many later artists. However, el mismo compositor advirtió que nadie debía buscar historias concretas al escuchar la música de su Scheherezade, but let go.
