Modest Mussorgsky composed his masterworkPictures at an Exhibition as a memorial to his friend, artist Viktor Hartmann. Devastated by the sudden death of his close friend, Mussorgsky visited a retrospective exhibit of Hartmann’s artwork and was moved to capture the experience in music. Join Rob Kapilow and NEC Philharmonia as they dissect and examine Ravel’s arrangement of this great work, accompanied by projections of many of the original Hartmann images which inspired the work.
