Composer Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov's most famous work is the sumptuous symphonic suite Sheherazade (1888), a dazzling musical representation of fantastical tales from 1001 Arabian Nights. The four movements of the suite represent exotic and romantic stories told by a captive princess to the Sultan. Sheherazade is a feast of brilliance and colorful imagery that showcases the composer's remarkable abilities as an orchestrator. Though lambasted by critics at the time of its premier, the suite quickly became and remains a favorite of conductors, musicians and audiences.
