Unwrap the Music: Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade

No longer available

Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

In the last movement of Scheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov notches up the tension until it seems it can go no further. The resolution is completely unexpected and yet totally satisfying. For the audience, it’s thrilling. But it’s very carefully calculated. Richard Gill will explain the fascinating way Rimsky-Korsakov does it.

The ebullient music educator/conductor Richard Gill joins the orchestra again to ‘unwrap’ this great orchestral work and reveal what makes it so special.

Part concert, part interactive talk, each Unwrap the Music is guaranteed to take your musical appreciation to the next level. This entertaining event is great for all ages, whether you are a seasoned concertgoer or new to orchestral music.
