Gustavo Gimeno and Augustin Hadelich make their debuts

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is fascinating because of the contrast between the brutal sultan and the clever title heroine. The composer’s vision of the Orient sounds splendid – it is not surprising that he was a sought-after teacher of orchestration. One of his students was Prokofiev, who acquired from him a fondness for Russian folk melodies, as we hear in his Second Violin Concerto. Both conductor Gustavo Gimeno and violinist Augustin Hadelich make their debuts.
