MODEST MUSSORGSKY – Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. for string quintet by R. Patterson)

Long time, almost hundred fifty years, ago renowned Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky visited an exhibition of paintings of his friend Viktor Hartmann and decided to compose a suite in his memory. Inspired by Hartmann’s paintings Mussorgsky wrote Pictures at an Exhibition, the characters of which – the gnome, the old castle,the cart on enormous wheels drawn by oxen, the unhatched chicks, two Jews, the market at Limoges, the catacombs, the hut on hen's legs and Baba-Yaga, the great gate of Kiev – you will meet in this staged concert.
