It is really amazing listening to Shahrzad music from 1001 nights (موسيقى شهرذاد من الف ليلة و ليلة) story. It makes me feel happy and change my mode. You can feel the story in it even without watching actors or ballet dancers.

Sheherazade (Scheherazade; Russian: Шехерезада, Shekherezada in transliteration), Op. 35, is a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888. Based on The Book of One Thousand and One Nights, sometimes known as The Arabian Nights, this orchestral work combines two features common to Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colourful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general. It is considered Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular work. The music was used in a ballet by Michel Fokine. This use of the music was denounced by the Rimsky-Korsakov estate, led by the composer’s widow, Nadezhda Rimskaya-Korsakova.
