Format: Paperback
This Dover publication is a very cost-effective way to get accustomed with this masterpiece by Rimsky-Korsakov. Scheherazade tells the story of 1001 nights, Rimsky shines his light over a number of this tales. The score is clear, well-readible, but lacks commentary and is not an outstanding reproduction.

Among Rimsky-Korsakow's most beloved works, this orchestral poem depicting select tales from Scheherazade and 1001 Nights.
The score is very durable and will lie flat nicely on a desk or music stand. The print is very large and easy to read, despite it's smaller size -- Dover opted for 8.5 x 11 in lieu of their more standard 9 x 12. The low price is a great attraction to the starving music student.
You'll love this colorful score for the Rimsky-Korsakov's lush orchestration and romantic writing (the score itself has many colorful pictures on it). This is a must for the music student, professional, or advid listener, alike.

I buy these scores strictly as an amateur. I can't even read music very well. But I find them invaluable in trying to work through the structure of music that I love. So for that purpose, this is perfect. I seriously doubt these scores would be of use for any purpose other than private study, but for that they are perfect.

NOT THE DOVER EDITION! I wanted the full score, but this edition by Kalmus is a piano reduction. Not that the score is wrong or bad, but I wanted the full piece. Alas, for some reason, Amazon sends you this when you order the Dover. Be warned.

I am studying Rimsky-Korsakov's Intrumentation Book. This famous composition will be helpful to understand how he uses instruments for coloring, balance, and expression.

This is Dover's printing of the full, orchestral score of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. It is a bit overwhelming. Rimksky-Korsakov was a master of orchestration and orchestral color and his main theme, at once stated by the trombones is the basis for all the rest odf this 40 minute piece. It's true his variations are not very well hidden but his coloring is incredible and this score lets you see them as well as hear them. I find myself following a different instrument in the orchestra each time I use it. See, kids, reading can be fun! ha ha This will not be a waste to your wallet or take up shelf space without being useful.
