Mussorgsky: Pictures at an ExhibitionFri, Apr 26, 2019 at 10:30 AM
Modest Mussorgsky was one of Russia’s most famous composers and this tribute to an exhibition of paintings by his friend Victor Hartmann is truly a pictorial exhibition-in-music. Depicting a selection of the works on show, the scenes are vivid and brilliantly inventive, giving every section of the orchestra an ample opportunity to shine.
