Rimsky-Korsakov's Sheherazade and Tchaikovsky with Noa Wildschut


  • Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky / Alexander Glazunov Souvenir d'un lieu cher
  • Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov Sheherazade

The spicy exoticism of Sheherazade evokes the sultry atmosphere of the fairy tales from One Thousand and One Nights. The young star violinist Noa Wildschut brings Tchaikovsky's memories of his vacations in Ukraine to life, in Glazunov's "violin concerto version.

Rimsky-Korsakov's Sheherazade
With Sheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov composed one of the most beloved orchestral works of the nineteenth century. He took the fairy tales from One Thousand and One Nights as his inspiration, which is clearly audible in the sultry atmosphere the composer manages to evoke with spicy exoticism. The orchestration is sumptuously rich and the melodies are mouth-watering.

Noa Wildschut plays Tchaikovsky
Noa Wildschut has been a name of significance on the Dutch concert stages and far beyond for years; you would almost forget she is only 22 years old. Under the mentorship of Anne-Sophie Mutter, the young violinist developed into a formidable soloist since 2015. "A new color in the music world," Classical Matters called her. In Glazunov's "violin concerto version" of Tchaikovsky's Souvenir d'un lieu cher, Wildschut is able to show her most romantic and colorful side. Tchaikovsky composed it at the same time as his Violin Concerto, as a tribute to the Ukrainian estate of his benefactor Nadezhda von Meck, where he had had a wonderful time.
