Young People's: Pictures at an Exhibition

About This Concert:

This concert is recommended for grades 3-6
Students will discover the difference between Mussorgsky’s original piano version of Pictures and the creative approaches Ravel took when preparing the orchestral version we’re familiar with today.

Fun Facts:

  • Modest Mussorgsky was a member of “The Mighty Handful,” a group of five Russian composers who worked together from 1856 to 1870 to establish a unified Russian style of classical music.
  • Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition was originally a solo piano composition and was composed in a lightning-fast three weeks.
  • Contemporary composer Jessie Montgomery is a New York City native who started her journey in music as a child, playing piano with her parents’ band. Now she’s an accomplished violinist and composer.

Minnesota Orchestra Young People’s Concerts are for schools, homeschools and families looking for an outstanding arts experience that is both educational and engaging. All orders must have at least one child (ages 1 to 17) and at least one accompanying adult.
