In this concert will be interpreted one of the most ‘fantastic’ works from the orchestral repertoire – Sheherazade. Based on the book “A Thousand and One Nights”, this orchestral suite tells the story of sultana Sheherazade, who saved her life thanks to the stories she has told her husband, Sultan Schariar, for a thousand and one nights, although he swore to kill all his wives after the wedding night!
The first part of the concert is attended by one of the most prominent young violinists, who has performed with the greatest orchestras and who recently signed a contract with the renowned publisher Deutsche Gramophon – Francesca Dego.
The conductor in charge is one of the most respected professors of Orchestra Direction (Royal College of Music of London) and one of the organizers of the Youth Orchestra of the European Union – Peter Stark.
