The final performance of Scheherazade on Monday March 16 will be live streamed on Youtube at 7pm direct from Melbourne’s Hamer Hall. Peruvian conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya will lead the perfomance in his MSO debut.

The symphonic suite, by great Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov, was inspired by a collection of Middle Eastern and Indian tales known as The Thousand and One Nights (or The Arabian Nights). It was composed in 1888 and draws on Rimsky-Korsakov’s career as an officer in the Imperial Russian Navy.

Also live streaming on Youtube: Beethoven and Mendelssohn, one of the great violin concertos, on Thursday March 19; and To Bach and Back, which will present the genius of Bach – refashioned – with classical accordionist James Crabb performing as soloist on March 26.
