Pictures at an Exhibition

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

In Pictures at an Exhibition, Mussorgsky created a whole magical world, a place deep in the Russian imagination.

Here, bells toll, gnomes and witches lurk in the shadows, and chicks dance in their shells. And then Maurice Ravel drenched it in orchestral colour.

LPO Principal Guest Conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada has made it the glittering finale of a concert that begins with a surprisingly bluesy take on a familiar tune and takes in another fairytale from Old Russia, as well as probably the world’s favourite violin concerto.

You’ll have heard Bruch’s First Violin Concerto before – but not the way Ray Chen plays it.
