Art inspires art in turn. This is particularly true for Mussorgsky’s iconic Pictures at an Exhibition, which were inspired by a series of works by Viktor Hartmann, an architect and painter. Mussorgsky’s ten movements, originally written for piano, depict subjects like the legendary Baba Yaga, The Old Castle, and the Great Gate of Kiev. The symphonic work we know today was orchestrated after Mussorgsky’s death by Ravel, who makes an additional appearance on the program with his first piano concerto. Rounding out the program is an Evening Serenade by Silvestrov, Ukraine’s foremost composer.
