 NapaValleySymphony.org - Program Notes
Rimsky’s melodies and rhythms are cast in molds taken from Russian folk music, and authentic folk tunes are often quoted in his works.
In folk tales and songs, ballads and legends, Rimsky saw not only high standards of artistic beauty, but a truthful representation of the way of life of the nation, its finest hopes and ambitions, its understanding of good and evil, of truth and falsehood, of beauty and ugliness.
The subjects that attracted Rimsky were not psychological or historical dramas or those dealing with grand passion, but fairy tales and folk legends lent themselves to interpretation in a truly Russian idiom.

However Rimsky Korsakov, a master of glittering orchestration, was the leading light.
Rimsky finally resigned his naval commission in May 1873 when a government position of Inspector of Naval Bands was created and offered to him, which he accepted and held from 1873 to 1884.
At times Rimsky suffered from something of a creative block as regards his own music, perhaps because he was so busy helping with the unfinished work of the friends who had died.

 BBC - Classical Review - Rimsky-Korsakov: Sheherazade, Kirov Orchestra
The repetition is no accident - it's ingenious both as a vehicle for Rimsky's fabulous inventiveness in harmony and orchestration, and as a depiction of the simultaneous sameness and unpredictability of the sea, in a movement subtitled The Sea and Sinbads Ship.
All credit, however, to orchestra and conductor for the quality of playing in general, and to the producers for the balance, both in the tuttis, and in bringing out Rimsky's crystalline solo textures, such as the passages for solo cello, horn and woodwinds in the first movement.
This piece of music is an example of rimsky's complete perfection.

The solo in Rimsky Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture is one of many for the second trombonist, along with those from Sheherazade, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 3 and Mozart's Requiem.
Presumably the composers were writing for orchestras using an alto trombone on the top part, and wanted the richer sound of the tenor trombone on these solos.

 Annotations to Ada, Part One, Chapter 1
The tale of Kitezh combined with the tale of St. Fevronia is the basis for an opera by [Nikolay] Rimsky-Korsakov [1844-1908] with libretto by Vladimir Belsky, The Tale of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevronia (composed 1904, first performed 1907).
An interesting feature of Rimsky's opera is the singing of the sirin, a mythical bird that lives in paradise, to herald the final transfiguration and apotheosis of Kitezh.
Another sirin associated in the Russian tradition with fairy tales and magical transformation is, of course, Vladimir Sirin, né Nabokov, who puts his personal and artistic signature on the passage in this allusion to Kitezh" (Rivers and Walker 263).
