At the time of its original creation, Paris was in the final years of the Belle-Epoque period. This ballet provoked exoticism by showing a masculine Golden Slave, danced by Vaslav Nijinsky , seducing Zobeide, danced by Ida Rubinstein , who is one of the many wives of the Shah. Nijinsky was painted gold and is said[ citation needed ] to have represented a phallus and eroticism is highly present in the orgiastic scenes played out in the background.

Controversially, this was one of the first instances of a stage full of people simulating sexual activity. Nijinsky was short and androgynous but his dancing was powerful and theatrical. The Golden Slave also incorporated more rippling and slower, sultry movement as opposed to the large, jump and turn heavy male solos audiences were used to seeing in classical ballets. It is rumored[ citation needed ] that in this death scene, Nijinsky spun on his head. The ballet is not centered around codified classical ballet technique but rather around sensuous movement in the upper body and the arms.

Exotic gestures are used as well as erotic back bends that expose the ribs and highlight the chest. Theatrics and mime play a huge role in the story telling. Fokine embraced the idea of diminished technique and further explored this after Scheherazade when he created Petrouchka in He went on to inspire other choreographers to throw away technique and embrace authenticity in movement. Bakst, who designed the sets and costumes for Scheherazade, viewed the stage as a three-dimensional landscape in which dancers, sets, and costumes were all of equal importance.

Its costume and scenic designs even inspired and influenced many fashions of the time in years to come. She becomes the principle female character rather than Zobeide.

King is known for his boundary pushing, long-lined, dynamic movement aesthetic which is exemplified in Scheherazade. In moments throughout the ballet, non-Western forms can be seen through the rhythm of the movement, as well as the quick level changes from grounded to upright. Especially in ensemble sections with precise hand and footwork. For this version, billowing fabrics overhead and a textured backdrop are suited to evoke mood changes as the lighting shifts.

His costumes continue with the simplified, abstraction of the narrative. They are less reminiscent of the ornate, exotic harems the original ballet portrays and are instead gauzier and lightweight. However, it is also modernized with contemporary, almost jazz-influenced, movements for both male and female characters. The sets and costumes were designed by Jerome Kaplan.

They incorporate some elements directly from the original designs of Leon Bakst, but also strip some away. Both mix ornate and more streamlined designs depending on the characters and settings for the scenes.

Critical reviews of the work can be difficult to find. Fritz Kreisler arranged the second movement The Story of the Kalendar Prince and the third movement The Young Prince and the Princess for violin and piano, giving the arrangements the names "Danse Orientale" and "Chanson Arabe", respectively. In , bandleader Skip Martin adapted from Scheherazade the jazz album Scheherajazz Sommerset-Records , [25] in which the lead actress, Yvonne De Carlo , was also the principal dancer.

He was played by Jean-Pierre Aumont. Various cuts, mainly from the first movement, were widely used by skaters, including: Michelle Kwan during the — season Yuna Kim during the — season to her world championship gold.


RIMSKY KORSAKOV, Nicolai - Tratado Practico de Armonia

Levensloop[ bewerken brontekst bewerken ] Rimski-Korsakov werd geboren in een adellijke familie en kreeg als onderdeel van zijn opvoeding muziekonderricht. Op twaalfjarige leeftijd werd hij lid van het zeekadettencorps en vanaf ging hij als marineofficier drie jaar op wereldreis. Al in leerde hij de componist Mili Balakirev kennen, die zijn groeiende liefde voor de muziek versterkte en hem overhaalde een echte muziekstudie te gaan volgen. Het succes van het symfonisch gedicht Sadko en zijn eerste opera Het meisje van Pskov waren voor Rimski-Korsakov aanleiding om de marine te verlaten. Hij werd inspecteur van de Russische marinierskapel tot en in werd hem gevraagd hoogleraar compositie en instrumentatie aan het Conservatorium van Sint-Petersburg te worden. Zelf dacht hij hiervoor niet geschikt te zijn door gebrek aan professionele scholing.



Jule His influence on younger composers was especially important, as he served as a transitional figure between the autodidactism which exemplified Glinka and The Five and professionally trained composers which would become the norm in Russia by the closing years of the 19th century. Rimsky-Korsakov believed, as did fellow composer Mily Balakirev and critic Vladimir Stasov, in developing a nationalistic style of classical music. He prepared works by The Five for performance, which brought them into the active classical repertoire although there is controversy over his editing of the works of Modest Mussorgskyand shaped a generation of younger composers and musicians during his decades as an educator. Scheherezade es un ejemplo de su empleo frecuente de los cuentos de hadas y temas populares. This love of the sea might have influenced him to write two of his best-known orchestral works, the musical tableau Sadko not to be confused rimsmy his later opera of the same name and Scheherazade. This style employed Russian folk song and lore along with exotic harmonic, melodic and rhythmic elements in a practice known as musical orientalism, and eschewed traditional Western compositional methods. He undertook a rigorous three-year program of self-education and became a master of Western methods, incorporating them alongside the influences of Mikhail Glinka and fellow members of The Five.


Practical Manual of Harmony (Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay)

In , his sons Vyacheslav originally Vaclav and Miloslav escorted Sophia of Lithuania , then a wife of Vasily I Dmitriyevich , to Moscow and took Russian citizenship under the Korsakov and Miloslavsky surnames, respectively. Throughout history, members of the family served in Russian government and took various positions as governors and war generals. Ivan Rimsky-Korsakov was famously a lover of Catherine the Great. Using his friendship with Aleksey Arakcheyev , he managed to grant them all the privileges of the noble family. By the time Andrei Petrovich met her, he was already a widower: his first wife, knyazna Ekaterina Meshcherskaya , died just nine months after their marriage.

Nikolaj Rimski-Korsakov

When he was 12 years old the family moved to St. Petersburg , where he entered the naval academy. At age 15 he began taking piano lessons and learned the rudiments of composition.
