Rimsky-Korsakov (Rachmaninov) – Flight of the Bumblebee – Kissin, Piano

Flight of the Bumblebee is an orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899–1900. Its composition is intended to musically evoke the seemingly chaotic and rapidly changing flying pattern of a bumblebee. Despite the piece’s being a rather incidental part of the opera, it is today one of the more familiar classical works because of its frequent use in popular culture. Kissin is playing Rachmaninov‘s transcription. – Evgeny Kissin WikipediaEvgeny Kissin Website
