Scheherazade (Annotated Solo Violin Part)

By 

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

"Scheherazade," opus 35 by Rimsky-Korsakov, is an orchestral suite from 1888, inspired by "The Arabian Nights," known for its vivid solo violin passages that personify the storyteller Scheherazade. The violin part, enriched by Glenn Dicterow's annotations, requires expressive depth and virtuosity to convey the suite's narrative.

Scheherazade (Annotated Solo Violin Part)

by:

Glenn Dicterow

The story of Scheherazade from Arabian Nights is full of mystique and gripping suspense, and Strauss's adaptation for orchestra follows suit. There's perhaps no one better to lead the charge through this monumental tour-de-force for the violin than Glenn Dicterow, who served as concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic for thirty-four years, who has taken to the stage with this work hundreds of times. In this far-ranging interview, Dicterow fields questions from Eric Silberger, who studied with Dicterow, and is head of violin at tonebase, touching on everything from Frank Sinatra to ricochet technique. He summarizes his message best when he says, "every violinist plays this differently, but the ones you remember are the ones that play it personally and tell a story!"
