Rising star Elim Chan conducts the LSO and ensembles brought together by LSO Discovery, the LSO's education and community programme. Telling of cold, dusty nights on the Silk Road and storms on the Arabian sea, the fearless Scheherazade invented stories night after night to entertain the muderous King. The tales of One Thousand and One Nights and the evocative music of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade have inspired the new pieces in this end-of-year showcase.
