  • Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is one of the great masterpieces of Russian music and, being a favourite of the general public, gave rise to many different orchestrations, including that of Walter Goehr, from 1942. Based on the paintings and drawings of Viktor Hartmann we find mythological creatures like the gnome who runs with deformed legs or the witch Baba-Yaga. A distinctive element of this work is the Promenade, which in its various versions represents the path that a visitor takes between the different pictures and rooms of an imaginary museum. In this commented concert, Rui Pereira tells us the fantastic stories behind the images and the music.
