East meets West as Orchestra Indiana performs Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s large-scale Scheherazade, which is based on the collection of middle-eastern folk tales One Thousand and One Nights. The program will also feature Tan Dun’s score from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, performed by special guest cellist Andre Gaskins, as well as Charles Tomlinson Griffes’s tone poem The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan, inspired by the unfinished poem by English romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
