Pictures at an Exhibition

Streaming: Wednesday, January 12, at 7:30pm EST

Mussorgsky, blindsided by the sudden passing of his close friend Victor Hartmann, turned his pain into art: he composed a suite of musical paintings for piano, inspired by Hartmann’s sketches. Maurice Ravel later brightened this imagined gallery with the colorful orchestral arrangement most recognizable today. Jader Bignamini leads this picturesque work and welcomes cellist Joshua Roman for Dvořák's Cello Concerto.
