Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular composition headlines a colorful North Carolina Symphony program. The picaresque form of his Scheherazade allowed the composer to combine traditional and Eastern themes in a ranging, entertaining work that was nonetheless controversial in its day. Still, the music is a scampering, grand delight. Rossen Milanov conducts and soloists Brian Reagin (violin) and Paul Randall (trumpet) are featured on a bill that also includes Haydn's rousing Trumpet Concerto and Tchaikovsky's poetic The Tempest. The symphony reprises the program Saturday night at Meymandi before moving to Memorial Hall on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus for a Sunday night performance. —Chris Vitiello
