Unmissable: Sarod (Indian lute) master Amjad Ali Khan takes the stage with his sons and the NJSO for an unforgettable meeting of East and West. Similarly, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade spans time and place.
KHAN Samaagam: A Concerto for Sarod, Concertante Group and String Orchestra (NJSO Premiere) Samaagam means “confluence”; Western and Indian musical streams merge to propel this heartfelt, emotive work.
Sumptuous and brilliant; like its fabled heroine from One Thousand and One Nights, Scheherazade captivates with tales of adventure and romance.
