‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ (Cleveland Orchestra)

Joel Voorman

Performance dates & times

  • Thursday, November 11 @ 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, November 13 @ 8:00 PM
  • Sunday, November 14 @ 3:00 PM

Ravel’s brilliant orchestration of Mussorgsky’s suite of virtuoso pieces for solo piano is one of the great orchestral showpieces. Mussorgsky was deeply affected by the death of his friend, the painter Viktor Hartmann, and conceived of the suite as a musical memorial with each movement depicting one of the artist’s fanciful works, featuring such diverse subject matter as chicks in their shells, a medieval castle, an ox cart, and a French market. The concert is rounded out with Ravel’s jazz and Mozart-inspired masterpiece of a concerto.

This performance will be conducted by Thierry Fischer and feature pianist Tom Borrow.
