Mussorgsky, Modeste - Pictures at an Exhibition

£65.00

Modeste Mussorgsky (1839-1881) wrote ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ in 1874 as a suite for piano. It was inspired by the drawings and watercolours of artist and friend Viktor Hartmann (1834-1873) and is intended to depict an imaginary tour of an art gallery. Many composers have since orchestrated the suite, most notably Maurice Ravel in 1922. There are ten movements including Gnomus, Bydlo, Catacombs, Baba-Yaga and The Great Gate of Kiev with a recurring and ever-changing Promenade linking the whole exhibition.

'Pictures at an Exhibition' is arranged here for 12 trombones by Robert Holliday. Scored for 2 altos, 7 tenors and 3 bass trombones.

The arrangement was premiered by the Royal Academy of Music Trombone Choir conducted by Bob Hughes at the British Trombone Society's 'National Trombone Day' at the Royal Academy of Music in London, 7th June 2015.
