MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition 

Ravel’s glorious orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition is a magnificent and hugely popular symphonic feast.  Yet this should not overshadow Mussorgsky’s original work for solo piano that, through the sheer scale of its imagination and invention, stands as one of the most remarkable instrumental creations of any age.

In the words of the great Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter, Pictures is 'the best Russian work for piano, amen.'

Experience thrilling live music by the world’s greatest Russian composers, performed up close in the Crucible Studio this May. See the full festival diary here.
