The Great Gate of Kiev from Pictures From An Exhibition, Mussorgsky
Program Notes

Pictures from an Exhibition

Dec13
1:30 PM
Dvorák, Chávez, Mussorgsky
Friday, December 13, 2013

Ravel’s brilliant orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition, from its stirring trumpet theme to the spine-tingling finale depicting the Great Gate of Kiev, anchors a colorful program celebrating the national identities of three composers. Dvorák’s Husitská Overture blends two traditional Czech tunes into a rousing opening work, and Chávez’s Piano Concerto, played by leading Mexican pianist Jorge Federico Osorio, features striking colors from an array of percussion instruments.

Postconcert CD signing with Jorge Federico Osorio on Saturday December 14 in Grainger Ballroom.
