Pictures at an Exhibition

Great GateAnother year -another theme for my blog. In 2016 we are going north to Russia, for composers such as Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and ‘The Mighty Five’, of whose compositions Moussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is one of the most celebrated works for piano.

Join me this year as we wander around Hartmann’s exhibition of paintings, [The Great Gate of Kiev, left,] and wander through Moussorgsky’s musical realisation of them. And we’ll explore solo works by the above Russian composers, for two hands and for left hand alone, some duets for four hands, two pieces for six hands, and a suite for four hands at two pianos. A very hands-on experience.

I look forward to your company …
