Overview

With the gentle, delicate strains of the violin and harp depicting one of the most famous storytellers of all time, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade will captivate you from the very first notes. Plus, violinist Stefan Jackiw will perform Prokofiev’s lyrical Violin Concerto No. 2, a work that is both beautifully lyrical and blazingly virtuosic.
