Concert Triumph! An enthusiastic audience of over 400 joined Nottingham Symphony Orchestra on Saturday 2nd March for an evening of classics with a fairy tale twist. Central to the programme was Rimsky-Korsakov's dazzling and evocative symphonic suite Scheherazade, based on One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern folk stories. This piece is a showcase for the Orchestra's section principals. There were fine performances all round, but particular mention should go to the Orchestra leader, Tim Boswell, for his virtuosic playing of the Scheherazade theme that recurs throughout the score. Alongside the Rimsky-Korsakov were the ever popular Hansel & Gretel Overture by Humperdinck, Dukas' Sorcerer's Apprentice, and the lesser known but beautiful Pohádka (A Fairy Tale) by Suk. A thrilling night. (To read some notes on the programme click here.)
