Description

People say that talking about music is like dancing about architecture. But that criticism doesn't apply to composers who write music about paintings. In this retrospective we discover the many portraits of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, by listening to different movements by each of these conductors: Rafael Kubelík, Fritz Reiner, Seiji Ozawa, Carlo Maria Giulini, Neeme Järvi, and Sir Georg Solti. Hear a whole program of music written about the visual arts.
