Originally written as a set of piano pieces, Mussorgsky’s splendid Pictures at an Exhibition translate the artistry of the composer’s friend Victor Hartmann into unforgettable music. Mussorgsky’s remarkable song cycles contrast encounters with death against the often uneasy world of children in The Nursery. Peter Breiner’s new orchestrations create a Pictures at an Exhibition for our times, achieving contemporary sounds through unusual instrumental combinations, right up to a spectacular Great Gate of Kiev performed by 104 musicians.
