The Auditori de Barcelona presents on of the best known works by Rimsky-Korsakov, The One Thousand and One Nights. The composer was constantly traveling far and wide which led to his work being tinged with influences from the Middle East.

The Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra (OBC), together with violinist Ray Chen, conducted by Xian Zhang present a program that start off with the work of a compatriot, Tan Dun, currently one of the best known international composers and writer of the music for the Beijing Olympics. Also included in the program is the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra op. 35 by Korngold, one of the 20th century’s most outstanding violin concertos.
