 Scheherazade cadenzas

Do the cadenzas in the 2nd movement of Scheherazade (beginning at Rehearsal F) represent any one character or motif within the story?

They remind me of something seductive (Dance of the Seven Veils, or the Decoy solos in Miraculous Mandarin.)

*Yes, I do know that both of those pieces were written after Scheharazade.*

Any insights??

Well I have to pass along a Marcellus story


When he was being conducted by Leopold Stokowski (known for being flamboyant and encouraging non traditional interpretations) Bob Marcellus finished the second enunciation and Stokowski just looked at him and said, "Why did you stop?"


Then he went into a lecture about how the solos represent the passionately charged vocalizations of "screaming eunuchs." He further explained that though eunuchs were not capable of reproduction, they provided every other need to the harem.
