Pictures at an Exhibition is a suite of ten pieces – plus a recurring, varied Promenade – composed for piano by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky in 1874. The suite is Mussorgsky’s most famous piano composition, and has become a showpiece for virtuoso pianists. It has become further known through various orchestrations and arrangements produced by other musicians and composers, with Maurice Ravel’s 1922 version for full symphony orchestra being by far the most recorded and performed.

By the way, we’ll also hear an excerpt from another Russian composer on this episode.

So get ready for an historical composer, conductor and orchestra all rolled up into one masterpiece on Volume 31: Pictures at an Exhibition
