"The Young Prince and the Princess"

At the time Rimsky-Korsakov was appointed professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, his teaching career took off even though he had not received training as a composer apart from what he had learned from Balakirev and Tchaikovsky’s guidance. He became a very successful teacher and was responsible for inspiring a number of talented students including Alexander Glazunov and Igor Stravinsky.

I very much enjoyed arranging this movement from his brilliant orchestral work "Scheherazade" The Young Prince and Princess. It certainly works well as a piano work for four hands and is fun to play.
