Scheherazade, also commonly Sheherazade, Op. 35, is a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888 and based on One Thousand and One Nights (also known as The Arabian Nights). This orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general.
Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov was one of most inventive and skilled orchestrators of all time, and a major influence on Russian classical music. He had the ability to create astonishingly rich and creative orchestral sound worlds. His talent was not the product of extensive practice, but some innate, maybe even divine, gift. He was also a member of "The Five", that innovative group of Russian composers who blazed a trail by creating uniquely nationalist music. Rimsky Korsakov eventually became their most highly-regarded member and a central meeting point for musical life in Russia.
