Score & Sound Masterworks are convenient, compact and inexpensive score/CD packs perfect for classical music enthusiasts and students. Follow along with the score as you listen to some of the world's great music. Discover which instruments are playing and in what combination, and admire the orchestration of a master composer. Publications in this series include an interesting article about the composition and history of the featured piece, a helpful reference addressing transposing instruments, and a glossary of musical terms used in the score. 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.
