Concert curated by Rachel Leach

Telling of hot, dusty nights on the Silk Road and storms on the Arabian sea, the fearless Scheherazade invented stories night after night to entertain the murderous King. The tales of One Thousand and One Nights and the evocative music of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade have inspired the new pieces in this end-of-year showcase.

Rising star Elim Chan conducts the LSO and ensembles brought together by LSO Discovery, the LSO's education and community programme. There'll be newly devised pieces by Classical Meets Jazz and Howard Moody's LSO On Track Next Generation - a group of talented young players from East London - plus audio-visual work created by LSO Discovery's Digital Technology Group, and performances from LSO Create and the LSO Discovery Senior Choir.
