  3. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 5 in F, 'Egyptian' Op 103 - Camille Saint-Saëns

Set your horizons to the East with our exploration of the exotic. Rimsky’Korsakov’s deservedly popular Scheherazade is a fantasy of oriental narratives based upon the adventures of Sinbad the Sailor as recounted by Scheherazade in 'One thousand and one nights'. With its dazzling orchestration, seductive melodies and lush harmonies, it brilliantly transports us into distant lands and oceans. Saint-Saens was another child-prodigy whose legendary skills at the piano can be brilliantly seen in his five piano concertos. The Fifth was inspired by a cruise on the River Nile and includes Nubian folk songs and the throbbing sounds of the steamer’s engines. It is believed Saint-Saens wrote some of the themes onto his napkin while onboard. The concert opens with Dvorák's exuberant concert overture Carnival – one of his greatest creations and a brilliant orchestral showcase.
