It has been a great Thanksgiving week and Thanksgiving day on Thursday, that will continue this weekend at Jones Hall as our great Houston Symphony Orchestra, led by our conductor, Maestro Andres Orozco-Estrada, will perform the luscious captivating tone poem, "Scheherazade" by the great Russian late era Romantic composer, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

The fetching Mrs. B and I will be looking forward to once again being able to go to Jones Hall to hear our world class Houston Symphony Orchestra this Saturday night.  Along with the epic Scheherazade, we will be hearing the 20th century Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich's Violin Concerto #1 in A-minor.

From the Houston Symphony Orchestra web page: "This Thanksgiving, Andrés conducts Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Inspired by 1001 Nights, this sumptuously orchestrated tone poem takes listeners along on the voyages of Sinbad and ends with an electrifying festival at Baghdad. Grammy® Award-winning violinist James Ehnes presents his unforgettable interpretation of Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1."

Please turn up the volume and enjoy this beautiful epic piece by Rimsky-Korsakov, that Mrs. B and I will be hearing Saturday night.
