Soaring violin solos, drama on the high seas and a total mastery of the orchestra: it's no surprise that Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade has become one of the most played and best-loved of all Russian pieces. After his thrilling CBSO debut two seasons ago, dynamic Czech conductor Jakub Hrusa returns with this and another Russian masterpiece, Tchaikovsky's charming Rococo Variations. Tchaikovsky was inspired by his lifelong love of Mozart, and the concert begins with one of the greatest of Mozart's symphonies, written for a visit to Hrusa's home city.
