Scheherazade, also commonly Sheherazade, Op. 35, is a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888 and based on One Thousand and One Nights (also known as The Arabian Nights). This orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general.

This recording of Rimsky-Korsakov's Shéhérazade, coupled with Borodin's In the Steppes of Central Asia and Lyapunov's orchestration of Balakirev's Islamey, is easily in the same league as Gergiev's earlier recordings and is as good or better than the best recordings of the past. In Shéhérazade, Gergiev stresses the extravagant color and explosive movement of the score and finds the dramatic structure of the work in its balletic forms.

Representing the stories Scheherazade told, Rimsky-Korsakov split Scheherazade into four movements (each around ten minutes). The first story, The Sea and Sinbad's Ship, introduces Scheherazade and her King, assigning them sweet and stern voices that exist on the periphery of each story - Scheherazade's creating; the King's listening. Both voices sustain the stories, serving as pulses that connect and propel them forward. For this reason, Scheherazade needs both their themes; they carry other elements, encircling them so they don't fall apart.
