MUSSORGSKY/RAVEL Pictures at an Exhibition
Take a stroll through an art exhibit with your Colorado Symphony as we explore Mussorgsky’s crowning composition as orchestrated by Ravel. Featuring musical depictions of ten paintings by his late friend, Viktor Hartmann, Mussorgsky’s work highlights varied moods and is connected throughout with a brilliant ‘Promenade’ theme that gives the sense of an art lover sauntering from piece to piece through a museum. 2018 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year and GRAMMY Award®—Winning violinist Augustin Hadelich returns to your Colorado Symphony, bringing his lyrical, singing style to Barber’s lush and virtuosic Violin Concerto, while Ives’ Symphony No. 3, “The Camp Meeting,” evokes memories from the composer’s childhood through music of the era.
