Scheherazade, Op. 35 Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

The overture to the operetta “Die Fliedermaus,” (The Bat), was produced in 1874 by J. Strauss, who was widely acclaimed for his waltzes and conducting prowess. Fliedermaus was Strauss’s second venture into theatre where the libretto and score became instantly popular, earning him the title, “Operetta King.” R. Schumann’s Cello Concerto was completed in a fortnight in 1850. The work was never performed in his lifetime. The concerto is written in three movements and has been described as a highly ingenious weaving of cello and orchestra. Our cello concerto soloist, Zlatomir Fung, was born in Oregon and is of Bulgarian-Chinese heritage. He attended the New England Conservatory Preparation School, and presently is the Kovnar Fellowship recipient at The Juilliard School. Mr. Fung has captured multiple first prizes in the Young Concert Artists competition, and has performed with symphony orchestras across the U.S., Romania, Bucharest, and Switzerland. Without question “Scheherazade” is Rimsky-Korsakov’s most famous work, thus far maintaining unabated its popularity at symphony concerts. Built on material from The Arabian Nights, it is Rimsky-Korsakov’s most descriptive music, full of the colors of the Orient and touched with its subtle flavors. “Scheherazade” was composed in 1888, and premiered in St. Petersburg.

We couldn’t be more proud to celebrate local cello hero Zlatomir Fung’s gold medal in last June’s Tchaikovsky Competition. Considered by all to be the preeminent classical music competition in the world, 20-year-old Zlatomir accomplished the extraordinary feat of winning first prize against the best young cellists, up to 32 years old, from throughout the world. Having performed as soloist with SPM four times in the past, Zlatomir, a native of Westborough, is a favorite son of SPM who admirably represents SPM’s mission to support highly deserving young artists. He will present Elgar’s deeply nuanced and universally revered Cello Concerto. SPM will also honor Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave on the occasion of her 91st birthday with Turbulent Landscapes, inspired by the paintings of English pre-impressionist JMW Turner and commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The program opens with William Walton’s spirited Crown Imperial March.
